SBA Capital Fund

The School Building Authority Capital Fund (SBA Capital Fund) is a funding mechanism created in the FY 2016 State Budget that is designed to provide upfront funding for projects.

By doing so, Governor Raimondo and the General Assembly sought to expedite high priority projects while reducing the burden of financing costs from State and municipal budgets.

The FY 2019 State Budget allocated $80M in School Construction Aid, of which $69.5M is for housing aid and $10.5M for School Building Authority Capital Fund projects.

The objective of the FY 2019 School Building Authority Capital Fund is to address high priority repairs and school safety projects in communities with limited financial capabilities.

Through an application process, all districts will have access to upfront progress payments funding to prioritize and expedite high priority projects with the ultimate goal of improving the health and well being of students and staff.

Applications are due September 21, 2018.
