About the Program
Trade Adjustment Assistance for Farmers (TAA for Farmers) provides free technical assistance to producers of agricultural commodities and to fishermen who have been adversely affected by import competition. If you believe your commodity has suffered a greater than 15% decline in the national average price, or quantity of production, or value of production, or cash receipts compared to the previous three marketing years; and imports contributed importantly to this decline, contact USDA Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) to determine if your commodity qualifies for TAA for Farmers and Fishermen.
