AASHE, along with the National Wildlife Federation and other organizations, recently signed a letter to strongly urge the President and Congress to support $100 billion in grants for public school facilities and to include the Rebuild America’s Schools Act in a reconciliation bill, led by The [Re]Build America’s School Infrastructure Coalition (BASIC). This funding would be used to repair and modernize hundreds of school facilities in our poorest communities and was promised by Biden on the campaign trail and requested in his FY22 budget proposal but was not included in the bipartisan infrastructure package.
