QZABs are a new financing instrument that schools can use to address infrastructure, health and safety, environmental, and energy efficiency issues associated with aging and overcrowded schools. Schools in 22 states are using QZABs and saving up to 50% of the cost of financing school improve. projects. QZABs use tax benefits to assist state and local educational agencies in financing the renovation or repair of public school facilities, purchasing equip., developing curricula, and training personnel. State educational agencies authorize eligible school districts to use these bonds or have the state issue the bonds on behalf of eligible districts.
