The Trade Adjustment Assistance Program (TAA) is a federally funded program that helps workers who have lost their jobs as a result of foreign trade. For a worker to be eligible for this program, a TAA petition must be filed with the U.S. Department of Labor for certification.

The TAA petition may be filed by:
  • Three or more workers
  • Employer’s representative
  • Unions
  • One-Stop operators or partners
  • State Dislocated Workers Unit

TAA petitions are investigated by the federal government to determine eligibility for certification.

Once the petition has been certified by DOL, the laid-off workers may be eligible for a variety of benefits, including job training, income support, job search and relocation allowances, a tax credit to help pay the costs of health insurance, and a wage supplement to certain reemployed trade-affected workers 50 years of age and older.


If you are a TAA eligible customer, please visit or contact your nearest workforce center.

For more information, please visit the United States Department of Labor website for TAA.
