1999 H-2A REPORT

Attached is a report on H-2A activity for Fiscal Year 1999, reflecting activity by region, state, crop, number of applications and H-2A openings requested and certified. This information may be helpful to the Regions and States in presentations or in responding to increased inquiries about the program. Please be advised that much of the data was obtained by hand counts, and we recognize that there may not be total accuracy of all data. Please share this report with SESA staff administering the H-2A program.

The national office appreciates the regional certifying officers and H-2A staff diligently working to provide the data for this report. We will need the same information in the same format as the attached report for FY 2000 by October 2000.

Questions may be addressed to Charlene Giles or Ben Orona at (202) 219-5263.
