Jackson Commercial Contractors Association was formed to increase awareness of the availability and the excellence of local contractors. Keeping as many local construction dollars local as possible is valuable to the entire community. A strong economy supports schools, social services, as well as arts and recreational resources helping to make Jackson a vibrant and desirable place to live. This grant for continuing education in the construction trades is one way to help insure the continued availability and excellence of local contractors.
