HVAC Indoor Air Quality Grants for Public Schools

Safe schools are a priority in Connecticut. Students spend half of their day inside school buildings. Improving indoor air quality helps students learn in the healthiest environment possible.

 

In 2022, Governor Lamont signed Public Act 22-118, establishing a new grant program that encourages public school districts to install, replace, or upgrade heating, ventilation, or air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The act also funds other projects that improve indoor air quality.

 

The program is overseen by the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) Office of School Construction Grants and Review (OSCGR). Review frequently asked questions to learn more about how school districts can access the supplemental funding they need. Further questions can be directed to das.hvacgrants@ct.gov.
