The construction industry, once a thriving and lucrative source of jobs, is poised to get some serious financial help.
The Federal Reserve is likely to provide some relief to construction companies as it ramps up its efforts to prop up the economy.
The Fed is likely also likely to loosen restrictions on homebuilding, which could make it easier for builders to obtain building permits.
The federal government has long pushed for more restrictions on the homebuilding industry.
It has tightened regulations for homebuilders to prevent them from buying properties from other buyers and to reduce competition for construction sites.
But the economy has been slowing down, and the housing market has slowed to a crawl.
The U.S. Census Bureau has reported that U.T.S., the largest construction company in the country, saw a decline in total construction activity of 5.4% in 2016.
The number of homes completed declined by 2.4%.
The overall construction industry shed 2,900 jobs, while private-sector employment dropped by 9,600.
That was a drop of nearly 20% compared to a year earlier.
Construction jobs fell 1.2% in the year ended June 30, 2016.
In terms of construction jobs, private- and public-sector construction workers combined lost 1.4 million jobs.
That’s about a 3.5% decline.
While the economy may be slowing, construction jobs have continued to rise in recent years.
In fact, the U.N. Bureau of Statistics reports that construction is expected to add 2.2 million jobs in 2020.
That is an increase of nearly 2.5 million jobs compared to the year before.
The construction boom in the United States is largely driven by the rise of large, multi-million-dollar projects that typically take years to build.
Those projects tend to be located in high-demand areas.
In recent years, there has been a significant uptick in such projects, particularly in the major cities of Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
A large part of that boom has come from private-market financing.
The recent surge in new home construction in Boston has been aided by the recent launch of the Boston Communities Fund, a program that has raised more than $2 billion in private capital.
Construction firms that have been hit by the downturn include a number of large construction companies that are not expected to be profitable in the near term.
The first group includes the leading contractor, Gensler, which is one of the nation’s largest private-equity firms.
The company has been the subject of a massive lawsuit filed by the state of New York in which it has accused Genslers construction of violating state environmental laws.
The suit claims that the company’s construction practices have polluted the Hudson River, polluted groundwater and endangered wildlife.
The lawsuit is still pending.
The second group includes two of the largest homebuilders in the U, Kiewit and Mecosta.
The companies are among the top five builders in the world, according to the company.
They are among only a handful of major builders that have the kind of financing that can be used to build big homes.
Kiewits construction company, in particular, has been hit hard.
The housing bubble and the downturn in the housing markets have resulted in a severe shortage of financing for big projects.
The New York state housing department recently issued a list of 10 cities and counties with the highest number of outstanding mortgage loans for construction projects.
That list included New York City, Long Island, Nassau County, Suffolk County, Westchester County and the Bronx.
That listing included many big projects in Manhattan and Brooklyn, including one in which the city and county of Queens paid $8.6 million for a project on the Upper East Side.
The city has been forced to make some major concessions to keep its housing markets from going down the drain.
In addition to the state and local subsidies, there have also been several major changes to building regulations in New York State.
These changes are largely in response to the housing bubble.
They include a requirement that new homes built on public land must have a certain height and be at least 12 stories, and that builders can’t build on public property with an existing building.
In some areas, the requirement also allows for builders who are not located in the surrounding community to apply to build on a parcel of land that is within a certain distance of the surrounding area.
The height requirement has also forced some builders to scale back construction projects, including ones that had been planned for some neighborhoods in Manhattan.
The building regulations also include a new requirement for home owners to provide a minimum amount of financial information for prospective buyers.
The requirements are meant to encourage the buying process by letting potential buyers know what the home is worth, how much money the buyer needs to pay, and how long it will take to get the money.
A lot of these requirements come down to ensuring that buyers are aware of how much time and money it will cost
