The Roofing Alliance recently announced its annual call for funding requests; this year’s submittal deadline for funding applications is Jan. 1, 2020.
The Roofing Alliance has allocated more than $5 million to fund close to 50 programs and projects to support high-quality educational programs and ensure forward-thinking responses to economic and technological issues.
Roofing Alliance Executive Director Bennett Judson says $270,276 in project funding was approved in 2019, with about 70% of funding dollars earmarked for continuing projects and programs, such as the Roofing Alliance’s ongoing partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities,® Roofing Alliance Student Competition and construction management partnerships with universities.
The Roofing Alliance seeks projects that enhance the performance of the U.S. roofing industry.
