Since the 1960s, the Trade Adjustment Assistance Program (TAA) has helped millions of trade-impacted workers who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own start a new chapter in the new economy by providing a path for employment growth and opportunity. Administered by the US Department of Labor, the Trade Adjustment Assistance Program is a federally funded program that provides long-term training benefits, health care support, job search and job relocation allowances, and income support for TAA certified workers. Once certified, workers must then separately apply for each benefit. Though the Trade Adjustment Assistance Program doesn’t replace the good job lost due to foreign trade policies, it does help the trade-impacted worker get back on their feet.
