The Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Act of 1974 provides assistance to workers laid off due to U.S. trade agreements. The Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) program received $2 billion in funding in 2010 as a result of the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act. TAACCCT provides community colleges and other eligible institutions of higher education with funds to expand and improve their ability to deliver education and career training programs that can be completed in two years or less.  TAA workers and other adults will be prepared for high-wage, high-skill employment while also meeting the needs of employers for skilled workers.

Wisconsin residents who were laid off or lost a job due to increased foreign imports or, in some instances, a shift of production overseas may be eligible for special benefits under the TAA program.

The United States Department of Labor (DOL) oversees the implementation of the grants. Grant projects require a high degree of accountability, quarterly performance reporting, third-party evaluation, and a commitment to achieve project and performance outcomes.
