Reauthorization authorized a Discretionary Construction Grant program under Section 8007(b). The Impact Aid DiscretionaryConstruction Program provides grants to eligible Impact Aid school districts for emergency repairs and modernization of school facilitates. The eligible Impact Aid school districts have a limited ability to raise revenues for capital improvements because they have large areas of Federal land within their boundaries.
