Local Home Builders Association Workforce Development Grant

The foundation currently awards grants to HBAV affiliated local HBA’s that have programs to improve the residential construction workforce in Virginia. 

Home Builders Association of Virginia Memorial Scholarship

This endowment was started at the Myers-Lawson School of Construction at Virginia Tech as a memorial to students and faculty who lost their lives on the Blacksburg campus in April of 2007. In 2007, this memorial campaign raised over $160,000 through a joint effort of the HBAV Educational Foundation and contributing HBAV members throughout Virginia. The permanent endowment will be a long lasting beacon of support from the building industry in Virginia and will further the goal of the HBAV Educational Foundation by helping to create the future leaders of Virginia’s housing industry.
