The Civic League of Greater New Brunswick created this program, through a partnership with DevCo, to provide minority and women residents of New Brunswick with the opportunity to get into the construction field. The New Brunswick Housing Authority has partnered with the Civic League to ensure spots for current public housing and HOPE VI residents. Similar to the WFDP, New Beginnings offers New Brunswick residents the opportunity to apply for entrance into other construction trades, including: laborers, carpentry, masonry, electrician, etc.

To qualify for the New Beginnings Program, a candidate must:

o Be a New Brunswick Resident (or HOPE VI resident)
o Have a high school diploma or GED
o Have a valid driver's license
o Be a woman and/or minority over 18 years old

Additionally, applicants must be able to pass a drug-screening test, and not have been convicted of a Class A Felony.
