Your Urgent Action is Needed Today to Protect the School Facility Program from Radical Changes
The State School Facility Program (SFP) is under attack. We need your immediate action to protect the SFP and state matching funds. Governor Newsom’s Department of Finance (DOF) is proposing amendments to AB 48 which would effectively end the current SFP. The amendments would also:
- Reduce access to Developer Fees,
- Create a new untested, unproven allocation system for New Construction and Modernization,
- Stop accepting new applications for New Construction and Modernization until all Proposition 51 funds have been expended – which means for at least the next two years
- Make many other changes all of which create uncertainty and no assurance that projects will be funded.

Please note: If your district is on these Acknowledged List data runs; for New Construction and Modernization, your project could be at risk if the Department of Finance does not change their proposal.
