Call for Funding – DEADLINE IS JAN. 1, 2020

As Roofing Alliance members, we are committed to securing the future strength and excellence of the roofing industry. Therefore, every year the Roofing Alliance funds critical research, education and technical projects to help preserve a profitable and competitive industry. Since its inception in 1996, the Roofing Alliance has funded more than $5.6 million in projects. It is vital for the roofing industry to be on the cutting edge of research and technology so roofing work continues to grow for roofing contractors, suppliers and manufacturers. The Roofing Alliance looks to fund projects that help reinforce this idea. Ultimately, we look for projects that enhance the performance of the U.S. roofing industry.

Projects submitted for consideration should:

  • Be generic in the sense they will not evaluate any proprietary products, services or materials
  • Not publicly advocate an industry position
  • Be broad-based, having value for all segments of the industry when possible

Specific criteria provide that:

  • A project must be seen to have a significant effect on the U.S. roofing industry.
  • A project must have value for all segments of the industry, if practical.
  • A project must contribute to the improvement of the industry.
  • A project should be one best conducted by the Roofing Alliance, meaning it is beyond the scope or otherwise
    inappropriate for NRCA or another industry organization.

Our Project Review Committee will receive and review the requests initially. It will analyze the requests and ask questions or request additional information, if needed, to recommend whether the requests should move forward to the Board of Trustees and full membership at the April 2020 meeting. We ask you to help us get the word out in the industry! The deadline for requests is Jan. 1, 2020. Click here for complete funding request criteria.
