The Chicagoland Foreign Investment Group, known for short as the EB-5 company, pledges to provide funding up to $27 million to McHenry County SportsPlex ”for construction and operation of the sports facility complex to be constructed in McHenry County.”

“The funding is contingent,” the letter from Taher Karneli says, “ upon the $8 million in equity to be raised by the equity group as well as several factors relating the the EB-5 Program and the requirements of various Federal laws that govern the program.”

The letter goes on to point out that the money supplied is intended to repay the financing provided by bonds issued through McHenry County.

One of the factors alluded to might be a necessity to broaden the investment mission of the EB-5 entity. This was discovered by Pete Gonigam of the First Electric Newspaper.
