"On June 5, 2015, USCIS announced that it had reopened the congressionally mandated H-2B cap for the second half of FY 2015.  USCIS has received a sufficient number of petitions to reach that cap.  June 11, 2015 was the final receipt date for new H-2B worker petitions requesting an employment start date before October 1, 2015.  The final receipt date is the date when USCIS received enough cap-subject petitions to reach the limit of 66,000 H-2B workers for FY 2015." - USCIS, June 15, 2015.
