The Southeastern Trade Adjustment Assistance Center (SETAAC) helps import-impacted U.S. manufacturers develop and implement projects through federal matching funds, provided by the Trade Adjustment Assistance for Firms (TAAF) Program, to regain global competitiveness, strengthen operations, and increase profitability.
SETAAC, operated by the Georgia Tech Enterprise Innovation Institute, assists potential clients in determining if they are eligible for the federal matching funds sponsored by the U.S. Economic Development Administration. This cost-sharing federal assistance program provides up to $75,000 in matching funds for third-party consultants to help guide a client’s economic recovery. Eligible manufacturing firms contribute a matching share to create and implement their respective recovery plan.
SETAAC works with firms headquartered in the Southeast region (including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee). Firms outside of the Southeast region should visit their local TAAC center here to locate other regional centers.
