SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WCIA) — The Illinois State Board of Education announced on Wednesday that more than 600 schools throughout the state will be receiving a total of $30 million in grants.

The grants come as part of the School Maintenance Grant Program, a dollar-for-dollar state matching grant used to improve and maintain education infrastructure throughout the state.

Eligible recipients can receive up to $50,000 to put toward completion of proposed maintenance projects.

“By investing in our educational infrastructure, we set Illinois students up for success,” Governor Pritzker said. Our state’s youth spend a majority of their days inside school buildings. It is our duty to make sure those facilities are safe, clean, well-lit, and adequately ventilated. With this funding, our children will learn and grow in sustainable, healthy environments – as they deserve.”
