Creating Our Check-off

On October 5, 2018, congress passed the “Concrete Masonry Products Research, Education and Promotion” Act. The program enables us to create a path where concrete masonry is the product of choice over other structural materials. Products included in the program are standard grey concrete block, architectural concrete masonry, concrete brick, and concrete masonry veneers.

The funding will come from one penny for every concrete masonry unit sold in the United States which will support a coordinated effort to promote concrete masonry units. Each region of the United States will have representatives to manage the funds and at least 50% of program funds generated from each region will be spent on regional projects.
