Urging infrastructure support for ROCs

Today, we are advocating for Higher Education Asset Preservation and Replacement (HEAPR) funding of $12.9+ million from the 2024 Minnesota State Legislature for a number of upgrades throughout a number of ROCs and field stations. These upgrades include a variety of HVAC, plumbing, roofing, lighting, septic system, and electrical infrastructure projects — and more — along with safety and ADA improvements.
