CA schools prepare to receive Prop 39 funds

YesOnProp39California schools are gearing up to make energy efficiency improvements with money allocated from Proposition 39, and the onslaught of projects may be a boon to companies involved in energy efficiency retrofits.

Proposition 39 was passed in November 2012 to close a corporate tax loophole that benefited out-of-state corporations. It will generate about $1 billion annually for California with half of the money going to the general fund and half toward measures designed to save energy at schools. The energy efficiency funds will be available for five years.

Earlier this summer, the legislature passed a budget bill to implement Proposition 39. Per the recent budget adopted by Senate Bill 73, roughly $460+million has been allocated for energy projects at K-12 schools and community colleges for fiscal year 2013-14. The deal involves a poverty-weighted allotment of Prop 39 funds to each school district and community college district based on their average daily attendance (ADA) with more money going to schools where more students receive free or reduced-price lunches.

So…how much will be allocated to Inglewood USD schools?
