Mid-America Trade Adjustment Assistance Center (TAAC) administers TAAF, a federal program funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA). TAAF’s mission is to boost American manufacturers’ ability to compete in a global market of less expensive foreign competition to expand markets, to strengthen operations, to increase profitability, thereby increasing U.S. jobs. Mid-America TAAC implements this mission by providing technical assistance and cost share grant funding to manufacturers that have been negatively impacted by import competition.
