Removing Barriers to Participating on Publicly-funded Construction Projects (projects funded with Federal, state, and/or city funds). The purpose of the training is to educate small construction contractors, disadvantaged-, women-, and minority- owned business enterprises on existing barriers that prevent them from participating in publicly-funded construction projects. The symposium will provide information, methods, and strategies that will assist them in removing the identified barriers; and increase their successful participation on federally-, state-, and city- funded construction projects.
There will be a special focus on Federal and State Prevailing Wage Laws, HUD Section 3 Requirements, Use of HUD Funds on Construction Projects, State of Missouri and Kansas City, MO Certification Requirements, Capital, Bonding, Insurance, and Licensing Requirements. Participants will also receive information on upcoming HUD-, Federal Home Administration (FHA), Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC), Kansas City Housing Authority, and City of Kansas City Construction Projects in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area.
