(Rosemont, IL) September 15, 2020—The Roofing Alliance, the foundation of the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), announces its annual Call for Funding. Committed to promoting and funding the advancement of roofing through research, education, technology and philanthropic programs, the Roofing Alliance is seeking to fund initiatives that will contribute to the advancement and growth of the roofing industry. This year’s deadline for funding applications is January 1, 2021.
Each year, the Roofing Alliance provides funding for research, educational initiatives and technical programs that address current issues and work to secure the future of the roofing industry. Roofing Alliance Executive Director Bennett Judson shared that in 2020, a total of $272,253 in project funding was approved. “While much of our funding is earmarked for our ongoing initiatives, the Roofing Alliance is always looking to support new programs that can fulfill a need within our industry and contribute toward the betterment of the U.S. roofing industry,” said Judson.
A notable example of a successful funding request was that of Clemson University, who used the funds to develop a three-credit roofing class for use in construction management programs throughout the country. The Roofing Alliance will be donating the course materials to construction management schools who are members of the American Council for Construction Education.
For 24 years, the Roofing Alliance has been committed to shaping the industry’s future by funding education, research, scholarships and philanthropic initiatives, all for the purpose of securing the industry’s future excellence.
