The School Construction Assistance Program (SCAP) provides funding assistance to school districts that are undertaking a major new construction or modernization project.

Projects must meet eligibility requirements.

School districts are responsible to secure local funding for construction projects. If eligible, the State provides partial funding based on formulas, allowances, and costs related to certain aspects of a construction project called recognized project costs.

Design Safety

Recent amendments to Chapter 28A.335.010 RCW now requires all school districts to consider certain design features when constructing or modernizing schools. Please see School Facility Design Safety Guidance for more information.

Note: All projects, including Local and state funded, are required to consider these design features.
