Any idea on the number of applications in the pilot program?


There's no limit to the number of applications the Office can accept into the program.

Thanks for reading,



My apologies for the poorly worded question.

I had meant to ask, how many applications have already been accepted into the pilot program?

I am wondering how many are willing to take the Office up on its offer, especially given the uncertainties that accompany the AIA drafting and passage.


I cannot recall seeing any stats on that. If any readers know whether the Office has posted this information, please let us know.
