Public School Infrastructure Fund


The newly created Public School Infrastructure Fund was established in RSA 198:15-y. This fund had $18,760,000 available to public schools, including charter schools, to expend for the following purposes: Providing an E-rate State match (bringing fiber connections to schools); addressing life and safety deficiencies at schools; and improving security in schools. This fund is now closed. However, HB1415 proposes to add an additional $10,000,000 to address school security. To apply, see “How to Apply” below, in anticipation of these funds becoming available.
