Minority Hiring Goals

According to projections from USACE, at its peak in 2022, the effort could require up to 1,300 workers per day at the site and create an anticipated 5,000 construction jobs to complete.

According to USACE, Department of Labor affirmative action goals for the project are 6.9 percent female participation by trade and 14.7 percent minority participation by trade.

McCarthy HITT is implementing a Project Specific Inclusion Plan (PSIP) that establishes specific maximum achievable opportunities for qualified minority and female participation on all aspects of construction and is designed to meet and/or exceed the Department of Labor goals. PSIP goals are 25% minority-owned and 5% woman-owned for business enterprise participation; and 14.7% minority and 6.9% female for individual workforce participation.
