Of course much of the work for the actual tournaments is done by volunteers or people paid a pittance who do it for the love of the game. Guess they are out of luck, too.
USTA coaches play no or minimum roles in the current national events. In the new system, USTA coaches would be involved in Grand Master, Sweet 16 and the winter teams. This added cost to pay for coaches' time and travelling expenses and free training to the players will have to be absorbed by the general membership.
