How do you help the construction industry as it begins the year?
If you have a question about construction in the capital, we’ve got your back.
From October through the end of February, the state government is giving out $50,000 cash grants to businesses and local governments to build new jobs in the state’s capital.
The money is earmarked for jobs in building materials, manufacturing and construction.
The grants are to help start businesses in the construction, transportation and warehousing sectors and create the infrastructure for construction jobs.

In the coming months, the grants will be distributed to businesses, and local government agencies can apply for them by October.
To get involved, visit the Construction Finance Fund website and apply.
There are two types of grants available for businesses.
One allows businesses to raise capital through the use of loans and the other provides a one-time loan of up to $50 for an existing business.
The construction finance fund is managed by the Department of Finance.
If you’re a business or local government, you can apply to receive a grant or make a contribution by visiting the Construction Financing website.
The state has set aside $1.2 billion for capital construction in 2017.
