BuildUP Community School in Birmingham will use a major national grant to expand programs that prepare high school youth for skilled trade careers and homeownership.

Enterprise Community Partners and The Wells Fargo Foundation named BuildUP one of the six winners of the Housing Affordability Breakthrough Challenge (HABC), a nationwide competition to find and seed innovative housing solutions across the U.S. The workforce-development-focused high school was awarded $3 million in the competition.

In addition to receiving grants ranging from $2 million to $3 million each, the six winning organizations will receive support from peers and industry experts to scale new strategies aimed at making homes more accessible.
