Updates to Facilities Funding From ​The State Allocation Board

By Brianna Garcia and Wendi McCaskill

Posted January 27, 2023 – Each year, the State Allocation Board (SAB) adjusts the School Facility Program (SFP) grants to reflect construction cost changes pursuant to SFP regulations and Education Code Sections (EC §) 17072.10(b) and 17074.10(b) for new construction and modernization projects, respectively. At its meeting on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, the SAB adopted an increase, based on the RSMeans Construction Cost Index (CCI) of 9.30%, effective January 1, 2023.

In addition to funding available through the SFP, there is also a funding round opening for the California Preschool, Transitional Kindergarten, and Full-Day Kindergarten Facilities Grant Program. As detailed in “Changes to the Full-Day Kindergarten Facilities Grant Program” in the February 2022 Fiscal Report, $477.75 million was allocated across two funding rounds. The first funding round was completed in April 2022 and consisted of $225 million. The second round, which includes all remaining funds, will run from February 1, 2023, through March 2, 2023. Local educational agencies should submit their Application for Funding (Form SAB 70-01) electronically through Office of Public School Construction (OPSC) Online. More information about the program, funding, and eligibility can be found on OPSC’s website.  

We will be discussing funding available through the SFP, developer fees, and other facilities funding sources as part of the Construction Basics and Accounting webinar series in May. Consider attending if you are interested in learning more.
