The General Services Administration has unveiled a $947 million investment plan to support the construction and renovation works on federal courthouses in eight communities across the U.S.
Denise Turner Roth, GSA administrator and inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2016, said Monday the investment seeks to address security and space challenges in federal court buildings, as well as promote economic development in local communities.
Feasibility studies on the Judiciary’s housing needs in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, will get $29.5 million in funds under the investment plan, which requires approval of appropriations committees in both chambers of Congress.
GSA will spend $787 million on the construction of new courthouses in Tennessee, Iowa, South Carolina, Alabama and Texas.
Alteration and repair works on court buildings in Georgia, Ohio and North Carolina will get $160 million in funds under the investment program.
