Details About Program Activities
Activities may include the construction, renovation, repair, or expansion of public schools to address capacity and/or facility condition deficiencies as prioritized by a Secretary of Defense. The Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation will only invite Local Education Agency school projects if appropriations become available in any given year.
Each invited school project is unique to the community it must serve and is evaluated on the basis of its long-term responsiveness to the condition and capacity problems that led to it being invited. Once invited, Local Education Agencies are to develop a project proposal that describes their proposed project, including how it addresses the condition and capacity deficiencies that placed the school on the Priority List, and how it complies with state and local design standards, educational specifications, and installation requirements. For more details on program activities, please contact the Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation Program Activity Lead.
