The Government has allocated $211.6 million to repair and rehabilitate educational infrastructure damaged by Tropical Storm Gustav, last August, as outlined in the Estimates of Expenditure, now before the House of Representatives.
Some $55 million will be spent by the Government to facilitate repairs to schools damaged by the storm.
The remaining $156.6 million will go towards the Schools Rehabilitation Project, financed through a grant from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
This money will be used to undertake a repair programme for 40 Primary and All Age schools that were damaged by the tropical storm.
Up to February, evaluation of tenders for 18 of the selected schools had commenced. The completion date for the project is March, 2010.
