The Great Lakes Trade Adjustment Assistance Center (GLTAAC) is a federally funded, non-profit organization that provides business assistance to manufacturers that have been directly hurt by imports. We bring the TAAF program to firms in Ohio, Indiana and Michigan.

Our value shows in the results of our clients.
