The OPSC is no longer accepting Lease-Purchase Program (LPP) applications because the program has exhausted all its funds. The School Facility Program, created by Senate Bill 50 in 1998, has replaced the Lease-Purchase Program in providing funds for new construction and modernization of K-12 school facilities.
For reference purposes, the LPP Handbook (PDF) and Historical Construction Cost Index information is available.
The OPSC is no longer accepting Lease-Purchase: Joint-Use Program applications because the program has exhausted all its funds. A Joint-Use Program is available under the current School Facility Program.
The OPSC is no longer accepting Federal Renovation Program applications because the application filing period has passed and all funds have been apportioned.
Effective January 1, 2001, the OPSC is no longer registering for the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response.

Senate Bill 6, Chapter 899, Statutes of 2004 (Alpert), as a part of the Williams Settlement, established the School Facilities Needs Assessment Grant Program (SFNAGP). The funding was available to schools identified by the California Department of Education (CDE) as ranked in deciles one, two, or three based on the 2003 Academic Performance Index (API), and that were newly constructed prior to January 1, 2000. The list of schools meeting the API criteria has been published by the CDE and is available on the CDE Website.
Under the provisions of the SFNAGP, each eligible school was provided with funding to complete a one-time assessment of facilities. The program required Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) to perform a one-time comprehensive assessment of the facilities for each eligible school site and provided $10 per pupil, or a minimum of $7500, to accomplish this. The assessments included:
- Facility inventory
- Estimated costs for 5-years to maintain functionality of the school buildings
- Remaining life of major building systems by building
- List of any necessary repairs
LEAs were required to complete the assessment for each eligible school and submit the information to the OPSC by January 1, 2006.
Any remaining funds after the Needs Assessment Report was completed were permitted to be used toward the cost of completing any of the repairs identified in Part V of the assessment. LEAs were required to report on the use of SFNAGP funds by January 1, 2007.
State Relocatable Classroom Program
The State Relocatable Classroom Program (SRCP) was originally designed to meet classroom needs for school districts impacted by excessive growth or unforeseen classroom emergencies. The OPSC is implementing the Phase-Out Plan for the State Relocatable Classroom Program (PDF) that was adopted by the State Allocation Board at its October 26, 2005 meeting, which outlines a process for the immediate disposal and sale of all State Relocatable Classrooms.
Effective December 1, 2005, the SAB no longer accepted applications to lease relocatable classrooms.
