CalSHAPE Funding Available to Improve School Ventilation

This week, the California Schools Healthy Air, Plumbing, and Efficiency Program (CalSHAPE) announced a funding opportunity for local educational agencies to upgrade heating, air, and ventilation (HVAC) systems in public schools. In addition, the funding will also cover noncompliant plumbing fixtures and appliances that fail to meet water efficiency standards.

The CalSHAPE Ventilation will be accepting Funding Round Two applications starting on March 28, 2022, at 10:00am and will close on May 31, 2022, at 5:00pm. In Funding Round Two, grants are awarded only for projects at sites located in an “Underserved Community” as defined in Chapter 1, Section E of the guidelines.  Submissions must be completed via the CalSHAPE Online System.
