Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) is available to workers who lose their jobs or whose hours of work and wages are reduced as a result of increased imports. Only former workers of certain “certified” employers qualify for this program.

Workers under this program may be eligible for training, a job search allowance, a relocation allowance, and other reemployment services. In addition, weekly trade readjustment allowances (TRA) may be payable to eligible workers following their exhaustion of unemployment insurance benefits.
