Success Story

SSA professionals crafted multiple bills to develop the existing preference programs for Haiti, including the HOPE I, HOPE II, and HELP legislation, and helped ensure their passage by Congress.  We incorporated several rules that provided various flexibilities for multiple product categories, making it easier to qualify production from Haiti for benefits under the program.
