The process for a company to improve their competitiveness using funding through the Trade Adjustment Assistance program has 3 easy steps.
Step 1 – Qualify
ASI’s expert staff will prepare an application for the program at no charge. In order to complete the application, basic company financial and employment information will be required. Following approval, the company can immediately begin the second stage of the program.
Step 2 – Plan
ASI will prepare an analysis of the current situation, including identification of strengths and weaknesses, and then identify projects which best reflect the strategic vision and meet the needs of the manufacturer.
Step 3 – Implement
After the plan is approved, implementation of projects included in the plan can begin. Projects are typically split 50/50 between the company and ASI. Consultants do the work, and submit invoices directly to ASI, so the company receives all the benefits at a fraction of the cost.
