Charlottesville's Capital Improvement Program refers to the plans, budgets and actualizes capital and non-capital improvement projects related to buildings owned by the City and City Schools. It is one of several funds in the city's budget.

"The Capital Improvement Program Fund is used to account for all financial resources that are needed in the acquisition or construction of capital assets. Revenues for this fund are obtained from bond issues, a transfer from the General Fund (City/County Revenue Sharing), a contribution from the City Schools for their small capital projects program, and contributions from Albemarle County for shared projects."
