The TAA Program provides aid to workers from Trade Certified Companies who have lost their jobs or whose hours of work and wages are reduced as a result of foreign trade.  If your company is not listed in the USDOL data base, you can petition for trade certification for your company and co-workers.

TAA offers a variety of benefits and re-employment services to assist unemployed workers in preparing for and obtaining suitable employment.  Eligible workers may qualify for Occupation Training/Tuition Assistance, Job Search Allowances, Relocation Allowances, Health Care Tax Credits, RTAA, and Trade Readjustment Allowances (TRA).
