Construction Ally & Partner Support
Your commitment as an Ally or Partner helps to create more equitable opportunities for underrepresented construction business owners.
Construction Allies consist of construction project owners and Construction Partners consist of construction companies.
The seven foundational courses of the Strong Foundations Program cover areas of business development and management that many new and struggling construction businesses need to continue growing and thriving. This program is FREE to enrolled contractors.
Resources like the Strong Foundations Program help project owners engage prospective bidders. The program can be an asset to those who are starting a new business or looking to grow in a sustainable way.

We believe that the trajectory created by the Construction Allies in Action powering new vendor development and education is critical toward ensuring a deeper contractor pool is available to support the region’s growth. Like-minded organizations will find a win-win partnership that not only accomplishes this mission but helps deliver on the promise of creating a more equitable and prosperous future for the community at large.
