Phone number changes for MLTF office

MLTF is discontinuing one of its phone numbers effective September 20. If you are using our old number, 619-233-1701, please update your records to our main phone line, 619-463-2369. Calls to the former get forwarded, so be sure to check which number you are dialing and make any necessary changes to your listing for MLTF. Calls will no longer be forwarded starting September 20.

Additionally, another phone number published years ago as a contact for MLTF, 415-566-3732, should also be replaced by the current number.

Either of these two previous numbers may appear on very old printed material or outdated web pages. If you have such literature or links, please search our site for more current resources on the topic.

MLTF’s correct phone number:
619-463-2369.
