Are you a manufacturer that has been hurt by import trade or other negative business losses? We understand the challenges that have negatively impacted your businesses over the last several years.

Fortunately there may be help available through one of the 11 Trade Adjustment Assistance Centers available around the country. It’s free, and all it requires is your attendance and participation!

What you will hear about from our speaker?
Grant assistance is now available through The New England Trade Adjustment Assistance Center (NETAAC) that is specifically tailored toward manufacturers that have been negatively impacted by foreign imports. The federally funded grants, which cover 75% of the costs of projects under $30,000 and 50% for ones between $30,000 up to $150,000, can be accessed by small, mid-sized and large companies from a variety of industries throughout the states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Rhode Island.

Qualifying businesses receive financial assistance to co-fund business-reviving initiatives that can address marketing, branding, strategy planning, e-commerce, lean manufacturing, ISO registration, and more.

Financial aid is available for those qualifying New England businesses that have experienced:
•Declines in product sales and/or product production
•A reduction in workforce (or anticipate a workforce reduction)

NETAAC receives funding through the Economic Development Administration (EDA), under the U.S. Department of Commerce, through the national Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) for Firms program.
