Job Search Allowance

If a TAA-certified worker has to travel outside of the local commuting area due to no suitable work available locally, some of the expenses incurred for travel and subsistence may be reimbursed by the TAA program. The maximum amount varies between 90% and 100% of allowable costs, up to $1250 or $1500.

Applications for job search allowances must be submitted and approved prior to incurring expenses.
