Chuck Gremillion, C3 executive director, announced that Texas Mutual Insurance Company, the state's leading provider of workers' compensation insurance, has awarded a $100,000 grant to C3 to help strengthen craft training programs throughout the Houston region.

Gremillion said, "We are honored to partner with Texas Mutual and to have their support to provide new career opportunities for future construction craft workers in the Houston region."

The grant funds will support several C3 efforts, including the C3 accredited employer scholarship program for new and existing C3 accredited employer training classes that cover OSHA safety, craft skills, jobsite leadership, crew leadership and more. The grant will support C3 efforts to identify small businesses and Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) businesses in construction and to advise them on their craft worker and safety training programs.

The grant also will help fund a Career Fair for the Construction industry in the spring of 2019 and on-going C3 initiatives with local Career & Technical Education programs as well as the coordination of "career signing days" for students who commit to joining a construction company prior to graduation.

"Texas Mutual is proud to partner with C3 in working to ensure a safe, skilled and sustainable craft workforce in the Houston area, aligning with Texas Mutual's mission of building a stronger, safer Texas," said Eric Bourquin, vice president of safety services at Texas Mutual. "As the communities and economy in Houston continue to grow, it's important to provide opportunities for training to build a safe workforce."
