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 39%)
  • 62% have added employees
  • Two-thirds of GLTAAC clients have increased productivity, while 88% of firms report that they are more competitive
  • 89% of firms generated a profit from operations in 2015 (compared to only 46% that were profitable before working with GLTAAC)
  • GLTAAC has a 96% 5-year client survival rate (96% of firms assisted since 1/1/2011 are still in business)
  • GLTAAC clients have increased their export sales by more than 50% since starting the program.
