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
