The Modernization Program provides state funds on a 60/40 state and local sharing basis for improvements that educationally enhance existing school facilities. Projects eligible under this program include modifications such as air conditioning, plumbing, lighting, and electrical systems.
Applications are submitted to the Office of Public School Construction in two stages: an application for eligibility and an application for funding. The School Facility Program Handbook contains detailed information on Modernization eligibility and funding in Sections 4 and 9.
See application submittal requirements and all Modernization Program forms.
The Office of Administrative Law has approved emergency regulations pertaining to accepting School Facility Program applications once bond authority has been exhausted. As of November 1, 2012, applications submitted to the OPSC will no longer be fully processed or presented to the State Allocation Board for approval.
