Nashville Construction Readiness Partnership (NCRP)

Aiming to ensure Nashville residents can access jobs in the region’s growing construction industry, Nashville Mayor Megan Barry catalyzed the Nashville Construction Readiness Partnership (NCRP) to develop and implement strategies that match area employers with skilled county workers and provide training opportunities for residents with no prior construction experience.  The creation of NCRP follows the passage of a 2015 charter amendment requiring that 40 percent of all construction hours on Metro-funded projects be completed by county residents.
