Prince George’s County Public Schools Wins International Award for Alternative Construction Finance
Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) and Prince George’s County Education & Community Partners recently won the international P3 Awards 2021 Social Infrastructure Project of the Year Award. PGCPS was one of ten finalists for the Alternative Construction Finance program, an innovative public-private partnership that is being used to build new public schools quickly and at a cost savings for the County. I was proud to work with Dr. Monica Goldson and other County leaders to create and fund the structure for this program, which is delivering six new schools by summer 2023.
This innovative model, the first of its kind in the U.S., is also advancing local economic inclusion goals through diverse and local business utilization, helping create generational wealth for local and minority-owned businesses in our County. This is a tremendous honor for Prince George’s County. We are not only providing quality learning environments for children, but also making this County a national leader in school construction.
