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.  From inception, the MBI Board of Directors have committed over $5 million toward the establishment of MBI-WORKS Endowment.

Funds from the Endowment have now leveraged over $1.84 million in workforce recruitment efforts in the past three years, most recently funding 4 different projects in 2022 across the state from Southeast Polk to Forest City to Northeast Iowa. The 2023 Request For Proposal was released on June 13th and was due on Friday, September 16th, 2022. The MBI-WORKS Endowment Board is currently evaluating proposals for funding and will make awards to those successful in December 2022 with the first round of payments in January 2023.
