Building With Us

The MSBA’s grant program for school building construction and renovation projects is a non-entitlement competitive program. The MSBA’s Board of Directors approves grants based on need and urgency as expressed by the City, Town, Regional School District or independent agricultural and technical school and validated by the MSBA. Once the MSBA Board of Directors invites a District to participate in the MSBA’s grant program, the District and the MSBA work together, in a collaborative process, as outlined below.


The MSBA has prepared detailed modules which outline the process and policies for each of the steps mentioned above. For an overview of these modules, click here

Project Advisories

In addition, the MSBA anticipates issuing project advisories from time to time as informational updates for Districts, Owner’s Project Managers (OPMs) and Designers in an effort to facilitate the efficient and effective administration of proposed projects currently pending review by the MSBA and/or projects with an agreed upon Project Scope and Budget Agreement or Project Funding Agreement. These advisories will be posted in the Project Advisories section of this website.
