Trade Adjustment Program Provides Smaller Manufacturers Up to $75,000 to Boost Competitiveness

Are you a smaller manufacturer that is losing significant sales to imports? The federal Trade Adjustment Assistance for Firms (TAAF) program can help qualified manufacturers enhance their competitiveness by providing as much as $75,000 in matching funds for business improvement projects such as quality certifications, employee training, and productivity improvement.

For Ohio companies, the TAAF program is managed by the Great Lakes Trade Adjustment Assistance Center (GLTAAC), funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce to support some of these helpful projects. To learn more or determine if your firm qualifies for matching funds, email GLTAAC Project Manager Scott Phillips or call (734) 787-7509. 6/30/2020
