Florida Lottery Funds have Contributed to the Construction and Planning of 780 Statewide School Projects
The Florida Lottery proudly supports the Classrooms First and Classrooms for Kids programs, which utilizes Florida Lottery revenue to fund school district projects for new construction, renovation, remodeling and major repair and maintenance of educational facilities. In addition, this funding assists school districts in meeting the constitutional class size reduction requirements. As of June 30, 2010, more than $3.9 billion in Lottery-backed bonds have been allocated for this purpose.
