Hi, all.

The FAP page (Fee Assistance Program) states that they are processing applications from May 8th and appeals from May 14th as of today (May 20th), but I still have not received a response to my submission from May 1st. Anyone else in a similar situation, not having received a response yet despite submitting long ago?

I understand that they are backed up due to a lot of new applications in response to COVID-19, but the website being inaccurate (if it is) gives applicants no idea of how soon/late they will get to their application, which is a necessary prerequisite for submission for many of us. If you are in the same situation, when did you submit your application/appeal? Maybe we can figure out a more accurate timeline together.

Thanks in advance for your contributions, everyone.
