The Joint-Use Program allows school districts to utilize joint-use partner and State funding to build a joint-use project the district would not otherwise be able to build due to lack of financial resources. With the Joint-Use program, the State Allocation Board has provided unfunded approvals and/or apportionments on a yearly basis through a funding round process.
The Architect’s Submittal Guidelines (PDF) and the Presentation on Additional Grant for Site Development Costs (PPT) contain detailed information for school districts and architects to prepare project plans, specifications, and cost estimates for project applications.
Please note: Joint-Use projects may be subject to Prevailing Wage Monitoring/Labor Compliance Program requirements (link).
The SFP Compliance Review page contains detailed information on compliance review requirements, including substantial progress and expenditure reporting.
The Financial Hardship Program (link) provides funding to districts that cannot provide all or a part of the required local matching share for a Joint-Use project.
