040522HAO00903CHAMPAIGN – State Senator Scott Bennett recently announced that three school districts in the Champaign County will receive $50,000 each as recipients of the 2022 School Maintenance Grant Program.

“The safety of our children begins with the improvement of our infrastructure. It is imperative that our children are provided with a safe, healthy and stable learning environment,” said Bennett (D-Champaign). “Each grant will provide the necessary funding to properly build the learning environment our students deserve.”

School district awarded the grant include Thomasboro CCSD 130, Rantoul City SD 137, and St Joseph CCSD 169.

A total of $30 million in 2022 School Maintenance Grants was dispersed to school districts across the state. Funding received from the grants will be used for the upkeep and maintenance of educational facilities.

Grants were awarded based on priorities including emergency projects due to disasters, health and safety projects, state priority projects, permanent improvement projects and more.

“Studies show that improving educational outcomes starts with creating high quality learning environments. Small improvements such as lights, ventilation, heating and cooling go a long way,” said Bennett. “These investments will improve the lives of students and teachers in these buildings.”

A full list of grantees and awards can be viewed on the ISBE website.
