Capital Renewal Program

In fiscal year 2022-2023, USF received $72.8M in deferred maintenance funds from the State, per House Bill 5001 (2022) Section 197. These funds will allow us to complete the top 87 projects on USF’s capital renewal/deferred maintenance list. Projects on this list address deficiencies in our campus facilities and infrastructure, especially building systems at the end of their life cycle. These projects had been deferred until funds were available to complete them. We prioritize projects that address multiple issues, such as life safety, accessibility, infrastructure performance, resource efficiency, and renewal of critical building systems, such as electrical, plumbing, and cooling/heating and ventilation systems.

The funds received are part of the Federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and must meet both Federal and State guidelines. The funds can only be used for projects supporting Education & General (E&G) facilities, deferred maintenance and must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Address critical life safety issues
  • Improve air quality to reduce the risk of viral and environmental health hazards
  • Improve water, sewer, utility, parking, or roadway infrastructure
  • Improve energy efficiency
  • Mitigate environmental deficiencies
  • Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Compliance with building codes

Together, the 87 projects being addressed with the funds received will impact all colleges across all campuses and facilities. More than half of the projects support university-wide improvements.
