This bill establishes the "Sullivan School Renovation Grant" and the "School Renovation Projects Matching Grant" program.

This program will provide school districts an opportunity to apply for a matching grant for "eligible projects"; such projects must be related to installation, repair, or renovation of roofing, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, or windows.

The bill specifies the application and notification process and authorizes the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to review applications and determine grant recipients. Grant award calculations are outlined in the bill and the matching amount districts must provide is based on the district's per-pupil expenditures as specified in the bill. The Department may assign priority status to districts that demonstrate rank and priority score as outlined with facility destruction, district growth, and equalized assessed valuation per pupil contributing factors.

The bill creates the "School Safety Construction Projects Matching Grant Fund" and requires that the program will sunset August 28, 2030.
