Trade Adjustment Assistance

The Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program assists workers who become unemployed due to the impact of foreign trade. The TAA program seeks to provide U.S. workers who are negatively impacted with the opportunity to obtain the skills, resources, and support they need to become reemployed in a high wage-high demand occupation. 

The first step to receiving TAA benefits and services is to file a petition with the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL). For information on filing a petition, click here.

If you believe that you may already be certified to receive TAA assistance, please visit Indiana TAA Certifications for a complete listing of all TAA-certified employers within the state of Indiana.
