New England Trade Adjustment Assistance Center, Inc.

NETAAC was formed to aid manufacturing companies in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont that have been negatively impacted by import trade. Qualifying businesses receive financial assistance to co-fund business-reviving initiatives that can address marketing, branding, strategy planning, e-commerce, lean manufacturing, ISO registration, and more. NETAAC’s goal is to help New England manufacturers increase profitability and retain employees while competing with imported products. In 2011, manufacturers working with NETAAC received over $5.1 million in approved assistance, an average of $125,000 per firm. There is no cost to apply to the program to determine eligibility and NETAAC handles all associated paperwork. All information regarding manufacturers in the program is held in strict confidence by NETAAC.
