Randolf, MA – NEI General Contractors was recently presented with an Award of Excellence in Minority Participation by Massachusetts Housing Investment Corporation (MHIC) for its commitment to creating access and opportunity for people of color and minority-owned businesses, ensuring that its work has a lasting impact on communities.

The Diversity and Compliance team includes director Carol Fuller, compliance manager Kassandra Martin, and diversity and inclusion coordinator André Barbour.

NEI awarded $21 million to minority-owned businesses on three of the last MHIC-financed projects (40% of total contracts and as high as 45% on Walker Park in Roxbury) and directing 65% of hours worked on these projects to people of color.

Over the last few years, NEI has worked to grow and strengthen their Diversity and Compliance Department. “At NEI, we believe strongly that our job is more than just to put a project in place. We have a responsibility to contribute positively to the surrounding neighborhoods and community that the project will become a part of,” says Carol Fuller, NEI Director of Diversity and Compliance.
