Alternative Facilities Assistance Program

In June 2017, the Ohio General legislature established the 1:1 School Facilities Option Program, commonly known as the Alternative Facilities Assistance Program (AFAP). Program guidelines were approved in October 2017.

Under this program, the Commission provides a reduced portion of projected state funds to assist eligible districts in constructing acquiring, reconstructing or making additions to any feature of a classroom facility consistent with the Master Facilities Plan (MFP) and that meets the design standards of the Ohio School Design Manual (OSDM). In consideration for the reduced state share, the district has more flexibility to create its own reduced scope of work for the project.
