The Texas Education Code (TEC), §42.158, enacted by Senate Bill 4 of the 76th Texas Legislature, 1999, created the New Instructional Facility Allotment (NIFA) for public school districts and open-enrollment charter schools. The NIFA is provided for operational expenses associated with the opening of a new instructional facility and is available to all public school districts and open-enrollment charter schools that construct new instructional facilities that meet the requirements of the statute and rules.
