Trade Act Program

This federally funded employment and training program provides benefits to individuals displaced from their jobs due to the competition of foreign imports due to work activity moving out of the United States. The trade program offers three training benefit options:

  1. Institutional Training: This will provide new skills that will lead to employment.
  2. On-The-Job Training: This is to assist the employer with the initial cost of hiring.
  3. Customized Training

Other benefits include:

  • Job Search Allowance
  • Job Relocation Allowance
  • Re-employment Trade Adjustment
  • Health Care Tax Credit
  • Trade Adjustment Allowance
