More Lean Updates

Presents More Lean Update Friday the 13th of March

LEAN is the Name of the Game for Section 232 Program!


As of March 1, 2009, all Section 232 applications must be submitted to OIHCF (either under the LEAN expedited process or under a TAP process that is expected to be very lengthy in terms of processing time).  This applies to new applications submissions ONLY.  For any Section 232 application currently in the review process under the MAP/TAP program prior to March 1, 2009, the application processing will continue under MAP/TAP.  NOTE, If you have any questions regarding TAP and OIHCF, please send your inquiry to LEAN Thinking Mailbox - LeanThinking@hud..gov
