Maximizing Opportunities for Returning Citizens and the Construction Industry

Hear directly from experts and gain answers to your questions!

Seminar Overview:

  • Learn about available tax credits and federal bonding programs that can assist you with second chance hiring
  • Q & A during the returning citizens panel

Creating Opportunities & Building New Lives:

ABC chapters across Pennsylvania coordinated efforts and signed a statewide articulation agreement with the PA Department of Corrections. Often, an inmate is incarcerated at a facility away from their home. The new agreement provides returning citizens with access to all ABC registered apprenticeship programs in the Commonwealth and credit for their education while incarcerated. The Keystone Chapter is providing this forum for contractors and workforce professionals to help employers navigate the issues related to potential employees’ transition from the criminal justice system back to society.

This is the third session in a series of four forums. Upcoming event in this series:

  • Remedies – TBD, December 2022
