Notes:
30 p., The Haiti Economic Lift Program (HELP) Act of 2010 amended the Earned Import Allowance Program (EIAP), reducing the qualifying fabric requirement from three to two; and the amended Haitian Hemispheric Opportunity through Partnership Encouragement Act (now HOPE II) also mandated GAO to review the effectiveness of the EIAP and to look for potential improvements. GAO examined (1) the extent to which the program has been used, (2) how US government agencies implemented it, and (3) how the program could be improved.
