Recommendation on Regulatory Reform
IIUSA’s Public Policy Committee’s has put together a subcommittee taskforce to propose comments on behalf of IIUSA. If you have comments on regulatory reform, please e-mail [email protected] and we will be sure that they reach the taskforce.
The annual reporting is used to demonstrate a Regional Center’s continued eligibility for the Regional Center designation, which must be filed for each fiscal year (October 1 through September 30) within 90 days after the end of the fiscal year (on or beforeDecember 29) of the calendar year in which the fiscal year ended. The failure to timely file a Form I-924A Supplement will result in the issuance of an intent to terminate the participation of the regional center, which may ultimately result in the termination of the approval and designation of the regional center.
IIUSA’s next webinar, to be held on October 30th, will be holding a practical workshop for how to approach Regional Centers filings of Form I-924A. Sign up now!
