The New York State Legislature recently passed a bill that would allow the state's dormitory authority to finance the renovation and construction of projects for nonprofit primary and secondary schools that provide educational services for handicapped children.

The authorizing legislation was sought by the New York State Coalition of Residential 853 Schools, which provide education programs for children who are emotionally disturbed, mentally ill, learning disabled, or physically handicapped. There are about 140 such schools in the state, 34 of which have residential programs.
