The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) announced it has formed a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Task Force. The task force was created to review and establish best practices for developing and sustaining policies designed to enhance a diverse and inclusive membership that is representative and reflective of all communities that seek the American Dream of homeownership.

“NAHB’s goal is to have a membership that accurately reflects the diverse communities in which we live and work,” said NAHB Chairman Chuck Fowke, a custom home builder from Tampa, Fla. “We want to improve the culture by ensuring a welcoming environment where every person, regardless of their background, race or gender, can thrive in this industry and create a successful and rewarding career.”

The DEI Task Force will create a structure for long-term improvement in the diversity, equity and inclusion within NAHB’s membership through development, dissemination and engagement, at the local, state and national levels..

Additionally, the DEI Task Force is working to create tools that engage members to action with easily accessible and complementary resources to help support the mission, including mentoring programs, messaging resources, training programs and much more.

On-The-Job Training Grants available

Apprenticeship Minnesota at the Department of Labor and Industry has made $23,000 available for On-The-Job Training Grants.  The funding is part of the Minnesota Registered Apprenticeship Expansion (MNRAE) grant efforts.

How it works

Applicants may be eligible for up to $300 for each new registered apprentice. These funds could be used to off-set expenses related to on-the-job training.  Funding is available for new registered apprenticeship programs and employers interested in developing new occupations or expanding an existing registered apprenticeship program.

More information and apply

Apprenticeship Minnesota was awarded $1.35 million dollars from the U.S. Department of Labor’s (U.S. DOL) Employment and Training Administration to expand registered apprenticeship programs in Minnesota.  This initiative is wholly funded with U.S. DOL grant funds, for the purpose of the MNRAE Grant.
