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. Clients tell us they’re impressed with our program, and they appreciate the project assistance of up to $75,000 in matching funds that can be used to tackle crucial initiatives. Our value shows in the results of our clients.

  • 71% of client companies have grown sales since entering the program (with an average increase of 32%)
  • 67% have added employees
  • Two-thirds of GLTAAC clients have increased productivity, while 74% of firms report that they are more competitive
  • 86% of firms generated a profit from operations in 2014 (compared to only half that were profitable before working with GLTAAC)
  • GLTAAC has a 96% 5-year client survival rate (96% of firms assisted since 1/1/2010 are still in business)
