Act 70 of 2019

Act 70 of 2019 was passed to reauthorize and modernize the PlanCon process.  The current moratorium for school districts and CTCs wishing to apply for the current iteration of PlanCon remains in place.

Act 70 also establishes a new maintenance program designed to defray costs for school districts and CTCs undertaking projects that, while vital, do not rise to the level of a comprehensive PlanCon project.
