External funding can be the first step in a master plan that builds towards a modern, healthy and safe learning environment. To maximize short-term funding while creating long-term successes, many districts will use funding in combination with energy and operational savings to stretch their dollars further.  

Our partnerships allow school districts to not only address foundational infrastructure issues, such as wiping out deferred maintenance backlogs, but also reinvest savings to fund far-reaching goals, such as healthier buildings, sustainable athletic fields or upgraded STEM labs. A partnership with Schneider Electric also includes financial experts to help find, apply, and implement other federal and state-level grant opportunities as they become available.  

Districts can use alternate funding models to:

  • Replace outdated or broken HVAC components
  • Improve filtration systems
  • Build touchless features into existing infrastructure, such as sinks and water bottle fill stations
  • Install real-time air quality monitoring systems
  • Repair and replace critical assets
  • Improve occupant comfort
  • Bring state-of-the-art technology to classrooms
  • Integrate renewable energy to offset utility bills and improve sustainability
