The $90 million grant program would help districts pay for heating, ventilation and cooling upgrades to combat Covid-19.

A proposed grant program in Connecticut would help districts pay for HVAC and other indoor air quality upgrades to school buildings. 

Governor Ned Lamont said in a news release that the proposal is necessary to help schools make infrastructure upgrades to combat the effects of Covid-19.

The proposal calls for spending $90 million in relief funds from the American Rescue Plan Act.

The program would require local governments to provide matching funds to receive a grant. 

Examples of eligible projects:

  • Replacing, upgrading, or repairing boilers and other heating and ventilation components
  • Replacing controls and technology systems related to HVAC operations
  • Installing or upgrading air conditioning or ventilation systems
  • Other similar work approved by the commissioner of the Department of Administrative Services
