On September 10, 2017, Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida as a Category 4 storm. Rebuilding after the storm was hindered in Duval County by a lack of skilled construction workers. The labor shortage prolonged our community’s recovery from Hurricane Irma, taking months for homes, businesses and critical infrastructure to be fully repaired. The goal of this program is to provide training in the construction trades, creating a workforce that's ready to tackle Northeast Florida's fast-paced growth and help our community be better prepared for future disaster recovery efforts.
