Approval to Submit School Maintenance Grant Application  
Vision 2022:
Financial & Facilities Management
Continue to work to address projects identified in the Facilities Master Plan, through the dedicated budget allocation for capital facility projects per Board policies.
 
Policy:
 
Background:
There is approximately $44 million available for the FY 2020 Round 1 School Maintenance Project Grant (SMPG). Grants will be approved up to the amount released by the Governor's Office of Management and Budget (GOMB). Future application cycles will be open when funds are released.

The School Maintenance Project Grant is a dollar for dollar state matching grant program providing awards up to $50,000 to grantees exclusively for the maintenance or upkeep of buildings or structures for educational purposes. Ongoing operational costs, including in-house labor for SMPG projects not contracted out, cannot be included for any School Maintenance Project Grant. A project may involve different types of work on a single building or structure or may involve a single type of work (e.g., new roofing or windows) on several buildings or structures. There is no limit to the cost of a project; however, grant awards shall not exceed $50,000 per grant award, and applicants shall provide a match from local funds equal to the grant amount requested.
 
File Attachment:
 
Summary:
As part of the Summer 2020 Capital Work, aging flooring will be replaced at Lincoln Elementary School. The estimated cost for the project is $429,700.

If the grant is approved, the State would provide $50,000 towards this cost. This project falls within the parameters set forth in the School Maintenance Grant Program. The Board of Education must authorize the School Maintenance Project Grant application during a duly convened meeting before the application can be submitted on IWAS and the board must reserve local funds to cover the district's portion of the project costs.
 
Funding:
There is no cost to apply for the grant. The costs associated with this project would come from the 2020-21 Operations & Maintenance Budget.

It is recommended that the Board of Education approve the School Maintenance Grant Application for submission.
