Central Washington Home Builders Association is dedicated to workforce development, coordinating and supporting member and association efforts to recruit more people into residential construction trades. 

Labor and subcontractor shortages remain widespread and are continuing to impact the industry in several ways. Simultaneously, the student debt load from a traditional four-year path, pushed by educators, parents, and society, has risen sharply. With vocational training removed from classrooms and a lack of trade education, it is time to present construction jobs as viable alternatives.
