More than one hundred APC contractor members support APC’s Advocacy Trust Fund (APC-ATF) (formerly the Educational trust Fund). These voluntary contributions assist efforts to educate the public and legislative decision-makers on the importance of an adequately funded, safe, and modern highway system.
The APC-ATF has financed media relations efforts in conjunction with advocacy for increased highway funding. In addition, the APC-ATF has helped to underwrite public service announcements during National Work Zone, the Pennsylvania Highway Information Association’s weekly e-mail newsletter, E-Motion as well as various other PHIA programs. Finally, the Educational Trust Fund helps to promote the highway construction industry as a career path for high school students. The Pennsylvania Construction Career Day is just one way we promote the industry to students.
Assessments of 1/10TH of 1% based on the total amount of public transportation work in Pennsylvania are prepared for both prime and subcontractor members to generate contributions. Participation is voluntary and greatly appreciated!
We hope you join our efforts to maintain a high level of investment in Pennsylvania’s highways and bridges.
