Take Action to Ensure a Future Workforce

Tell Your Representative to Fully Fund Job Corps


A House appropriations subcommittee has eliminated the Job Corps program, the nation’s largest residential career training and education program.

The Home Builders Institute, NAHB’s training affiliate, is the largest Job Corps national trades training contractor.

Given the severe labor shortage in the construction industry that is raising construction costs and harming housing affordability, funding for Job Corps is needed now more than ever.

Send your letter asking them to vote for an NAHB-supported amendment from Reps. Sanford Bishop (D-GA) and Mark Amodei (R-NV) that restores full funding for the Job Corps program.
