Carolinas AGC Ramps Up Plans to Boost Construction Workforce in the Carolinas

On December 20, Carolinas AGC, the construction industry association of the Carolinas announced its efforts to attract construction workers and boost careers in the industry. The Carolinas AGC’s (CAGC) announcement came on the heels of receiving billions of dollars in funding.

North Carolina received $5.5M from the General Assembly through the Carolinas AGC Foundation, which comprises $3M received to develop the Contractor Business Academy for Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB). In addition, the state also received $2.5M to ramp up apprenticeships and construction training. The organization plans to join hands with North Carolina Community Colleges and the state’s trucking association in order to meet demands for truck driver jobs.

"We are looking forward to making the most of the billions of dollars that North Carolina and South Carolina will receive for infrastructure and other construction funding – thanks to great work done by lawmakers at the state and federal levels. We also will continue doing everything we can to draw more people into excellent construction careers and to improve the quality of life here with badly needed infrastructure improvements for highway-heavy, building and utility construction."

- Dave Simpson, CAGC President & CEO

Carolinas AGC has been engaged in adding value to its members through its networking efforts, government relations, education and training partnerships to boost community development.
