The USPTO issues the Notice of Allowance after your application has passed through the initial evaluation and the opposition window and there are no unresolved office actions or oppositions.

The exact time will depend on multiple factors, including the current backlog at the USPTO, potential problems with your mark, and oppositions coming from other trademark owners. However, if there are no issues, you can expect to receive the NoA about 6-8 months after filing your trademark application.
