Who we are
Skills Build Us! – The Nation’s Construction Apprentice Assistance Program – is a nonprofit partnership between LCPtracker, Inc. and Emerald Cities Collaborative. The program is designed to help ease the construction industry’s skilled labor shortage while paving the way for disadvantaged workers in our communities to transition into construction careers.

How this works
Community-based organizations link workers to needed funds
