    The announcement will come Thursday in Newport, a town left with a large unfinished development after alleged fraud was uncovered in the program.

    Jay Peak owner Ariel Quiros and former Jay president William Stenger were accused in 2016 of misusing more than $200 million raised from foreign investors through the EB-5 visa program for developments at or near the resort.
