The New Construction program provides state funds on a 50/50 state and local sharing basis for eligible projects that add capacity to a school district. Adding capacity to a school district can include the construction of a new school, or the addition of classrooms to an existing school.
Applications are submitted to the OPSC in two stages: an application for eligibility and an application for funding. The School Facility Program Handbook contains detailed information on New Construction eligibility and funding in Sections 4 and 5.
