Hurricane Katrina Construction Workers Fund provides financial assistance

The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) recently awarded nearly $400,000, raised through AGC’s Hurricane Katrina Construction Workers Fund, to Gulf Coast construction craft workers adversely affected by Hurricane Katrina. To be eligible for the fund, applicants must be employed by an AGC member firm and have certified losses in excess of $10,000.

AGC established the fund through its Education and Research Foundation to provide financial assistance to construction workers in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama who suffered financially from the disaster.
