What is NEREF?

In 1999, the North East Roofing Educational Foundation was formed as a not-for-profit corporation. NEREF provides financial assistance for employees, immediate family members of employees, or the immediate family of NERCA members who plan to pursue post-secondary education in college and vocational programs.

This spring, NEREF was able to provide fourteen scholarships to members of the roofing industry to assist in furthering their education. Through the generosity of several foundation members and contractors, all fourteen scholarships were completely funded. However, even with their generosity, the Foundation was forced to turn away more than forty deserving applicants. Our goal is to be able to provide additional scholarships to deserving individuals from the roofing industry in the years to come.
