For the H-2B temporary nonagricultural category, the cap is 66,000 per fiscal year, with 33,000 allocated in the first half of the year and 33,000 in the second half. As of February 11, 2011, USCIS had approved 37,293 beneficiaries (with 2,539 pending) for the first half of FY 2011, and had approved 8,588 so far for the second half (with 4,281 pending). USCIS noted that the estimated number of beneficiaries needed to be included on petitions filed with USCIS to reach the H-2B cap will always be higher than the actual cap, to allow for withdrawals, denials, and revocations.
