The Southeastern Trade Adjustment Assistance Center (SETAAC) is an U.S. Economic Development Administration Trade Adjustment Assistance for Firms (TAAF) program operated by the Georgia Tech Enterprise Innovation Institute. SETAAC’s mission is to help import-impacted U.S. manufacturing firms develop and implement projects to regain global competitiveness, expand markets, strengthen operations, and increase profitability, thereby increasing U.S. jobs. SETAAC provides up to $75,000 of matching funds to manufacturers to improve their firm’s competitive position. These funds are applied toward the cost of consultants, engineers, designers, and industry experts who perform recovery projects. Award recipients retain control over implementing these projects, including selecting and utilizing the skills of private-sector technical and consulting firms. Eligible firms are headquartered in the southeast region (including AL, FL, GA, KY, MI, NC, SC, and TN) and have experienced a 5% decline in sales and employment. A firm has up to five years to allocate their awarded funds.
