Master Builders of Iowa Workforce Opportunities Require Knowledge and Skills Endowment
The MBI-WORKS Endowment was created to offer resources to complement career education and workforce recruitment into the Iowa commercial construction industry. In total, the MBI Board of Directors have committed $5 million toward the establishment of MBI-WORKS Endowment.
Funds from the Endowment have now leveraged over $1.3 million in workforce recruitment efforts in the past two years, most recently funding 5 different projects in 2021 across the state from Sioux City to Strawberry Point to Des Moines. This upcoming year’s Request For Proposal is expected to be released in the late Spring/early Summer. Please check back to this page for newly released information and contact Ben Hammes at BHammes@MBI.Build for any questions about eligibility for the grant funds.
