A Prosperous Future for Homebuilding in California
Our mission is to advance the homebuilding industry in California by providing scholarships, publishing innovative research findings, and promoting workforce education programs.
How We Serve Our Community
We provide the resources and support for students to train for their future careers, continue their education, and pursue their dreams of success.
Making a difference in the lives of students makes a difference in the future of homebuilding. Establish an endowment, give a scholarship or leave a legacy with planned giving.
Events are an important fundraising means to raise awareness of our mission to advance the building workforce thru high school construction training, scholarships, research. Let’s connect & work together.
The Construction Industry Research Board (CIRB) Report publishes residential and commercial permit statistics with information directly from building departments. Monthly and annual data services available.
