1 TAA (trade adjustment assistance) includes training and training-related expenses (tuition, supplies, travel and subsistence where necessary), job search allowances, relocation allowances, and allocations for State administrative expenses. In this case, it is not a reference to the regular TAA program - there is a TAA category for both the TAA and the NAFTA-TAA programs.
