For Associations

GLTAAC has been in existence for 36 years and has successfully assisted hundreds of small manufacturers in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan that have been negatively impacted by imports. We have experience working with firms in virtually every manufacturing industry in the region. Through the TAAF program, we help companies identify, develop, staff, implement, manage, and finance business improvement projects designed to increase their global competitiveness. For more information about the TAAF process, go here.

GLTAAC does not implement client projects itself. Rather, we provide companies up to $75,000 in co-funding to pay for outside private-sector consultants, trainers, or other service providers to do them. This enables clients to use the best possible provider for every project. It also means GLTAAC can be an unbiased advisor, as we have no incentive to recommend any particular project or consultant. For examples of projects companies complete through the program, go here.
