FACT SHEET: Progress on Biden-⁠Harris Action Plan for Building Better School Infrastructure

Published by the White House: Today, Vice President Harris will provide a six-month progress report on the Biden-⁠Harris Action Plan for Building Better School Infrastructure, outlining a series of actions from across the Administration to upgrade our public schools with healthy, safe, sustainable facilities and transportation.

Today’s announcements reflect the Biden-Harris Administration’s broader commitment to ensure that America’s children have what they need to thrive. Key milestones and announcements outlined today include:

  • Promoting Efficient Schools. DOE recently launched the second round of its Efficient and Healthy Schools Campaign, which aims to advance energy performance, reduce carbon emissions, increase resilience, and promote a healthy learning environment in schools through recognition, training, technical assistance from Lawrence Berkley National Lab, and 1-1 consultations with individual schools. DOE also released school efficiency enhancement guides with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for schools looking to replace a chiller, boiler, rooftop unit, or building controls.
