Home Builders Institute, Inc. Receives $102.8 Million to Provide Career Technical Training for Job Corps / by Tressa Dorsey

On March 28, 2018, the US Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration announced that Home Builders Institute, Inc. was awarded $102.8 million in funding to provide Career Technical Training in the areas of Electrical, Facilities Maintenance, HVAC, Plumbing and Landscaping to young adults enrolled in Job Corps.

The contract was historically a sole source opportunity which lead to HBI contacting us to assist with developing a comprehensive and competitive response. The TAD Grants team worked closely with leadership at HBI to establish the key elements of existing program activities and areas that would be built upon to improve service delivery and job placement. “From the moment we contacted TAD Grants seeking their assistance writing a Request for Proposal (RFP) it was obvious they know exactly how to approach, format and word it. They immediately took the lead learning all they could about our organization and our history providing construction trades training and placement services for underserved youth. From there they constructed and worded the proposal in the exact format and language DOL required. The result, a five-year grant that enables HBI to continue its 45 year history with the Job Corps program." Keith Albright Vice President of Job Corps

We are proud to have played an integral role in securing this level of funding for such an outstanding organization and look forward to working with HBI in the future!
