TEXO Foundation raises funds to support the construction industry through the generous support of our TEXO members. Our goal is that, through university support via scholarships and grants, high-quality employees will be attracted to the Dallas/Fort Worth construction market. In 2021, the TEXO Foundation awarded $25,000 in scholarships to students from regional universities, and we look forward to them starting their career in the North Texas area for employment through internships and upon graduation.

Nonresidential construction spending decreased 0.4% in August due to rising costs of both financing and delivering construction services, reflecting a persistent disparity between high contractor confidence and gloomy macroeconomic trends. Spending shrunk on a monthly basis in 10 of 16 nonresidential subcategories in August, according to an Associated Builders and Contractors analysis of data published Monday by the U.S. Census Bureau.
