We’ve changed the name of the APC Educational Trust Fund to the APC Advocacy Trust Fund. Why? Because the Advocacy Trust Fund is the driver of APC’s public messaging and industry advocacy efforts. The APC Advocacy Trust Fund pays the expenses of the Keystone Transportation Funding Coalition, the Pennsylvania Highway Information Association, public polling, television appearances and much more. All these efforts are the advocacy and marketing arm of Pennsylvania’s transportation construction industry. Formed in 1971, the APC Educational Trust Fund was originally started to educate the public of the value of good roads. Your financial support of the APC Advocacy Trust Fund is a solid investment in the future of your business.

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.
