Needs Grants

590017_1[1].jpgNeeds projects are the major capital improvement projects funded through the SBA's General Construction Fund. County Boards of Education submit capital improvement projects to the SBA for funding consideration. Projects are submitted and evaluated pursuant to the SBA's Policy and Procedures Handbook - Appendix F.  

The process involves: SBA and WVDE approval of county CEFP, SBA staff review including site visits, review and rating by the plan review team, and interviews by the authority with the County Superintendents and Board Presidents. The Authority then completes the process with their deliberation and selection of the projects.
