TAA Partnership Tools Publicize Trade Adjustment Assistance in Washington

The grant funds a toll free hotline (866-TAA-3399) to answer questions about TAA petition and benefits and to redirect laid off workers to their appropriate local WorkSource offices, and allowed the production and distribution of over 11,000 full-color brochures throughout the state's workforce system. It also funded the production of an informative, user-friendly video about the TAA program and its benefits.
