Apply here to become a Construction Partner in the Construction Allies in Action initiative and contribute to generational change within the commercial construction industry.

Who can become a Construction Partner?

Construction companies that are committed to furthering diversity and inclusion within the commercial construction industry through actionable items, transparency, and accountability. Construction Partners will help fund some of the initiatives within the Strong Foundations Program.

Partner Expectations


  • Public statement on your company website that your company is supporting diversity within the workplace and vendor contracts.
  • Verify your company’s vendor documents are ensuring equity for all construction contractors.
  • Submit letters of recommendation for all Minority Construction Companies who graduate from the Strong Foundations Program.
  • Provide a list of MBE/DBE/WBE contractors that you have hired on your projects, which will be published in our December eNewsletter and available on our website in celebration of the impact your company is making in the construction industry.

Making a Difference

When you become a Partner in the Construction Allies in Action initiative, you are enabling a Minority Construction Company to take part in the Strong Foundations Program, giving them the knowledge and tools they need to grow and manage their company.

Partner Expectations

Proceeds will be used to cover the hard costs of the Strong Foundations Program. All funds in excess will be put into a scholarship for a minority student at Grand Rapids Community College Workforce Training Programs for construction skilled trades training.
