1 This number may be higher than the actual cap, as USCIS provides an allowance for withdrawals, denials and revocations. 2 As noted, if the cap is not reached for the 1st half of the fiscal year, those numbers will be made available for use during the 2nd half of the fiscal year.  In some fiscal years, therefore, depending on demand for H-2B workers, more than 33,000 cap-subject persons may be granted H-2B status during the 2nd half of the fiscal year. 3 Since USCIS is currently accepting petitions for both fiscal years 2010 and 2011, this figure includes the total number of beneficiaries pending for both fiscal years.
