Groundbreakings and Dedications

    For many communities, school districts, institutes of higher education, or and state agencies, receiving state funding for a project that will benefit the community and public is an important milestone. These milestones are often commemorated by groundbreakings – the symbolic start of a construction project – or dedications/grand openings that celebrate the opening of the completed project.

We offer Groundbreakings and Dedications Tool Kits to help districts and other facilities plan for these special days.

Listed below are those upcoming events that have been reported to OFCC. If your group is celebrating an event related to one of our programs, please let us know by filling out this event form.
