Apply for Capital Outlay
The Property Control Act defines a “capital outlay project” as the acquisition, improvement, alteration or reconstruction of assets of a long-term character that are intended to continue to be held or used, including land, buildings, machinery, furniture and equipment. Capital outlay funding cannot be used for operating expenses; salaries; materials and supplies; events, brochures, pamphlets and publications; and retroactive reimbursements of previous purchases.
Beginning with the 2020 Legislative Session, the information required to submit a capital outlay project request will be collected online. The form requests project details, including contact information, project cost, description, location and ownership. This information is necessary to draft the legislation. The remaining information requested may be used by state agencies to administer a project, if an appropriation is made for that project.
Once the legislative session begins, the Department of Finance & Administration, Capital Outlay Bureau will be providing reports to the Governor’s office showing all of the capital outlay projects being requested. The report contains the project description, the entity that will receive funding, the project title and the total project cost.
If you are interested in submitting a request for capital outlay funding you must first review the “Capital Outlay Request Form Instructions” available below. The instructions discuss in detail how to fill out the electronic form.
After reading the instructions, you may submit a Capital Outlay Request.
