B3: CAPital Construction – Rebuilding Community through Second Chances

Dan Jurman and the panel will discuss CAPital Construction, a program that won first place (small city) in the 2017 US Conference of Mayors / Wells Fargo Community WINS competition. CAPital hires employees with barriers to employment and provides paid training while they rehabilitate blighted housing and provide lead remediation. The homes are then rented to at-risk families or sold to low to moderate income first-time home buyers through local partnerships with both other nonprofits and government agencies.
