Examines services provided to Trade Adjustment Act (TAA) participants at all stages of their involvement with the TAA program.
The report highlights promising practices in the provision of these services of the Trade Adjustment Act program—from initial introduction to workforce services by the Rapid Response team, through job search, initial assessment, case management, training, and post-training placement services. The report discusses how restrictions on the use of TAA funds are a decisive factor in some states regarding the amounts of, and organizational arrangements for, delivering these services.
