Trade Adjustment Assistance Program (TAA)
The Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Program is a Federal program that assists U.S. workers
who have lost or may lose their jobs as a result of foreign trade. This program seeks to provide affected workers with
opportunities to obtain the skills, credentials, resources, and support necessary to become reemployed.
A group of workers may be eligible for TAA assistance if their jobs are lost or threatened
due to trade related circumstances as determined by the United States Department of Labor (USDOL) Office of Trade Assistance
investigation. A worker or group of workers who are laid off, must submit a petition to the USDOL within one year of the
date of layoff in order to be covered by the petition and be certified by DOL grants.
