Earn Your 'America First' Certification

certified through

From extensive polling we know that over 70% of Americans prefer a buy American, hire American policy, and now - with the America First Certification - you have a way of proving to your customers and prospects that you do!

And yes, it is OK to have some of your offices overseas. And yes, it is OK to utilize some components that are not made in America. After all, the America First policy is about fair trade that helps keep America strong, not protectionism.

You simply have to score 85% or higher on a review of your people, products, places, sourcing, and taxation, as shown below.

Does your organization creeate jobs for Americans, who then pay taxes and spend their money locally?

places
PLACES
(Up to 20 points)
You earn points if your offices, plants, and other facilities are housed in America, thereby creating American jobs and tax revenues
sourcing
SOURCING

TAXATION
(Up to 5 points)

The Value Proposition

The value proposition is simple: For most companies, one sale because of the America First Certification more than pays for the cost of your certification. And we'll even guarantee that if you don't get at least one sale from having the America First Certification, we'll give you a second year free!

How You Qualify

We use a non-invasive process to verify your people, products, places, sourcing, and taxation.

Essentially, we verify: the number of people you employ (your payroll report cover page, no names or specific earnings info required); the addresses for your home office and factories, and; some of your sources (we just verify that you do indeed purchase from them; we do not need sales volume).

All in all, the process is fairly quick and simple. And by qualifying, you get the right to use the 'America First' seal and stickers on your website, products, packaging, and marketing materials, which should help generate more sales for your organization.

The application takes less than five minutes to complete, so get started today!
