  • The Inflation Reduction Act & Schools: New Funding for Healthy, Sustainable, Cost-Effective Schools

    February 29, 2024  1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

    The Inflation Reduction Act has the potential to bring millions of dollars to Wisconsin schools for needed facility upgrades and improvements. This unlimited, non-competitive funding is available to all schools that adopt eligible clean energy technology. These improvements can bring long-lasting benefits to schools, including improved student health and safety, fewer learning disruptions, and operational cost savings that can be applied to other district priorities. Want to learn more?

    On February 29th at 1 pm CST,  UndauntedK12 and Forward Together Wisconsin are hosting a webinar that will help teams involved in decision-making for school construction and renovation projects with an understanding of how new federal funding, combined with local utility incentives, can be leveraged to inform long-term facilities planning well into the next decade.  This session will also feature speakers from Slipstream, Sun Prairie Area School District, and Focus on Energy.  To learn more, email tyler@forwardtogetherwi.org.
