The Iowa Demonstration Construction Grant Program was proposed by Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa and originally authorized by Title III of Public Law 105-78 for $8,000,000 becoming effective September 28, 1998. Subsequently the grant has become known as Harkin Grants with Congress authorizing annual allocations of $10,000,000, $9,249,813, $9,000,000, $50,000,000, $6,954,499, $6,958,699, $14,880,000, $4,789,834, 5,471,000, and $7,287,000 with the 2010-11 grant period running through September 30, 2013.

The purpose of the program is to help school districts correct fire safety problems and to help school districts leverage local resources to construct new schools or remodel, modernize existing buildings. Approximately 35 percent of the available funds have been allocated each year for addressing fire safety issues and 65 percent for construction. Grant award recipients are listed according to the school year when the school district received the award.

Reverted Grant Funds for Fire Safety Available for 2013-2014

For public school districts that have fire safety needs during the 2013-2014 school year, there are fire safety grants available through reverted funds from the previous grant program.  The Iowa Department of Education has applied for a one-year extension to use reverted grant funds from the previous grant program for one-year fire safety grant projects.  The approximate amount of reverted funds is $800,000.  The budget and project period for the fire safety grants is October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2014 as approved by the United States Department of Education-Impact Aid Office.
