The Office of the Bronx Borough President has supported the renovation and creation of libraries, science labs, playgrounds, green upgrades, media centers, school clinics as well as the purchase of computers, smart boards and Mobile Science labs.

To complete your request for funding, please send a letter addressed to the Borough President with a cc to Betty McCray, Director of Capital Programs, and Monica Major, Director of Education and Youth Services, that contains a School Construction Authority or Department of Education Division of School Facilities approved cost estimate and a list of items/work you are requesting. Deadline: January 15, 2018

If you have any questions, contact the budget office.

Please note, if you are requesting funds for technology or equipment, please assure that your school’s electrical system can handle your request. The Office of the Bronx Borough President is unable to fund upgrades to electrical systems.

Charter Schools
Charter schools are viewed as not-for-profits and will need to fill out the non-City Capital Request Form and adhere to those guidelines, unless they are on City-owned property or co-habited with a public school.  In these two instances, a charter school does not need to fill out the non-City Capital Request Form.  Otherwise, please refer to the non-City Capital Request page.
