Northeast Indiana Works Gets Award for TAA Services

November 12, 2019
Northeast Indiana Works was recently named Region of the Year by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) for providing excellent Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) services. 

The TAA program provides various kinds of assistance to workers who have been adversely affected by foreign trade. The assistance can include training, income support, job search guidance, and a relocation allowance.

Northeast Indiana Works oversees WorkOne Northeast career centers in Economic Growth Region 3. During program year 2018-2019, Region 3 served more than 327 TAA-eligible participants across northeast Indiana.

​In addition, Region 3 posted the highest successful training completion rate at 91 percent.

Individual WorkOne staff members in five other Indiana economic growth regions also won awards. There are 12 growth regions in the state. 
WorkOne Northeast gave me a chance to start over in a new career, even at my age. Through education and training, I’m learning an in-demand trade as a CNC machinist at Greatbatch Medical and making a living wage at the same time. Thank you WorkOne for giving me the chance to show the world that old dogs can learn new tricks.
