HBI Schools to Skills Grant Program

The two-year grant program, offered to students at no cost, provides HBI’s nationally recognized, patented Pre-Apprenticeship Certification Training (PACT) curriculum and industry-recognized certifications to middle school and high school students.

The program is one of only three national curricula recognized and approved by the U.S. Department of Labor and many state departments of education. PACT is designed to be hands-on, competency-based curriculum and is aligned with the STEM educational model – a curriculum based on discipline areas increasingly prominent in the modern workforce, including science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The program strengthens connections to local industry through our affiliation and partnership with the National Association of Home Builders and its 700 local and state associations.
