The application period is open for $55 million in awards to prepare schools for earthquakes.
The Seismic Rehabilitation Grant Program provides competitive grants up to $2.5 million per building to plan and strengthen critical public infrastructure, especially schools and emergency services facilities. Public K‐12 school districts, community colleges and education service districts are eligible. School leaders have until Dec. 16 to apply, with the winners announced in April.
Business Oregon, the state agency that manages the program, awarded nearly $60 million to 24 school districts this year.
