Capital Renewal & Deferred Maintenance

Important Update: Limited Funding through FY 2014.

Each year, the University of Houston receives approximately $10 million from the Higher Education Assistance Fund to finance Capital Renewal & Deferred Maintenance projects. CRDM funds are used for maintenance and repairs to public areas of buildings and grounds, including HVAC systems, plumbing systems, electrical systems, elevators, fire alarms, roofs, window replacements, masonry work, painting, plazas, road/sidewalk repair, and etc.

CRDM funds cannot be used for non-University properties, maintenance or custodial contracts, equipment purchase or rental, software, auxiliaries, travel, or training. Typically, CRDM projects have a budget between $10,000 and $500,000, with individual items of work being less than $50,000. Priority will be given to those project that address CRDM as well as help support energy/sustainability, safety and academic goals of the university.
