The 2018 Washington State Legislature appropriated $10 million in capital funding for STEM Capital Grants (SSB6090 Section 5005). Grants will be available to school districts for public school facilities servicing students in grades 9-12, or any combination thereof.
The grant funding will be used to construct classrooms or labs, as additions to existing school buildings, or to modernize specialized STEM facilities. As a requirement of the grant, districts are required to have a secured private donation (cannot be state, local or federal) of cash, like-kind, or equipment in a value no less than $100,000.
Please go to OSPI School Facilities website for more detailed information regarding the grant. Washington STEM will be conducting a webinar regarding this grant on July 16, 2018. For more information about the webinar, please visit Washingtonstem.org .
The STEM grant application will be accessible through iGrants Form Package 855 July 11, 2018 and will close on October 15, 2018 at 4:00 P.M.
