To receive Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Program benefits and services, the worker group must be determined eligible by the U.S. Department of Labor. To submit a petition for worker group eligibility, see our Petitioner page. Individual workers must then apply for benefits and services through the state workforce agency and their local American Jobs Center.

This video provides a good overview of the TAA Program.

Due to program changes, there are multiple versions of the TAA Program. Individual benefits and services vary depending on the petition number.  However, the majority of participants are currently being served under the 2015 Amendment Benefits.
