Ohio funding allocations will result in $336 million in school construction

April 22, 2021
The state's Facilities Construction Commission has awarded more than $154 million to six districts with local funding in place to build education space.

The Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) has approved more than $154 million in state funding for school construction projects in six Ohio school districts.

Combined with $181 million in local funding, these projects represent more than $336 million in public construction work, the commission says.

“OFCC is excited to partner with these districts to build high-quality, flexible learning environments that support their community’s vision for educational success,” says OFCC Executive Director Cheryl J. Lyman.

The local districts have already secured funds though bond elections; the state's share will enable them to move forward with the projects.
