State s share of cost

State’s Share of Cost

  • Reimbursement rate

    • Current estimate is 52.9%

    • Some factors that can increase final rate are:

      • Adopting green-building standards and measures

        • Each measure has additional costs also

      • Renovating rather than building new

    • The exact, final rate will not be known until project is approved by MSBA in March 2013
