Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(105 ILCS 230/5-400)
Charter school construction grants.
(a) The Capital Development Board is authorized to make grants to charter schools, as authorized by Article 27A of the School Code, 105 ILCS 5/Art. 27A, for construction projects. The grants shall be paid out of moneys appropriated for that purpose from the Build Illinois Bond Fund. A charter school and other eligible entities have no entitlement to a grant under this Section.
(b) The Capital Development Board shall adopt rules to implement this Section. These rules need not be the same as the rules for school construction project grants or school maintenance project grants.
The rules may specify:
(1) the manner of applying for grants;
(2) project eligibility requirements;
(3) restrictions on the use of grant moneys;
(4) the manner in which school districts must account
for the use of grant moneys; and
(5) any other provision that the Capital Development
Board determines to be necessary or useful for the administration of this Section.
With respect to those school construction projects for which a charter school applies for a grant on or after July 1, 2009, the school construction project must receive silver certification from the United States Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System.
