The TAA Program only works when there are TAA participants. In order to set participants up for success, early intervention and outreach to the workers is essential.
Rapid Response is required to be offered to all petitioning worker groups. View the webinar for Rapid Response reporting. View Training and Employment Notice (TEN) No. 23-14 that includes information for partnering with Rapid Response for petition filing.
Also, the Rapid Response framework and Rapid Response self-assessment are terrific introductory guides to understanding Rapid Response. Find these in TEN 31-11 (The Rapid Response Framework) and TEN 32-11 (Rapid Response Self-Assessment Tool).
Additionally, review the Peer Support Worker materials from Maine. These Peer Support Workers are integral in getting TAA participants into the program and successfully completing.
