The Roofing Alliance announced its annual Call for Funding.
Committed to promoting and funding the advancement of roofing through research, education, technology and philanthropic programs, the Roofing Alliance is seeking to fund initiatives that will contribute to the advancement and growth of the roofing industry.
The deadline for funding applications is Jan. 1, 2022.
Each year, the Roofing Alliance provides funding for research, educational initiatives and technical programs that address current issues and work to secure the future of the roofing industry.
Roofing Alliance Executive Director Bennett Judson shared that to date over $5.8 million in funding has been approved for 51 projects, programs and studies.
“While the Roofing Alliance has a number of ongoing initiatives that we fund, we are always looking to support new programs that can fulfill a need within our industry and contribute toward the betterment of the U.S. roofing industry,” Judson said.
Several of the most recent projects that have been funded include Clemson University who is using the funds to develop three, three-credit roofing-specific courses that will lead to a formal Roofing Certificate, and Florida Gulf Coast University who is conducting a formal study surrounding employee safety, "Heat Stress Conditions and Awareness for Roofing Workers."
