Purple Line Workforce Compliance

The Nationally Targeted Workers (NTW) program is an ongoing effort to cultivate a viable, robust, and diverse construction workforce through the identification, training, and sustained employment of persons significantly affected by poverty and/or social barriers. To achieve compliance with the established NTW goal, 33% of construction work hours must be performed by those classified as socially or economically – disadvantaged. As of July 31, 2023, the Purple Line Project has exceeded the established NTW goal by having 65% of its construction work hours completed by members of the NTW program.
