STATEHOUSE (Dec. 7, 2022) — Huntertown will receive $944,400 to improve roads and bridges through the Community Crossings Matching Grant Program (CCMG), said State Sen. Liz Brown (R-Fort Wayne).
The CCMG, established by the Indiana General Assembly in 2016, aims to advance community infrastructure projects, strengthen local transportation networks and improve Indiana’s roads and bridges. Since its enactment, the program has awarded more than $1.1 billion in state matching funds for local construction projects.
"Being able to build and maintain reliable infrastructure is extremely important for states who endure all four seasonal weather changes," Brown said. "Huntertown is developing at record pace and their leadership has done a great job in meeting the needs of their growing community. I am happy to see these useful grants going toward making improvements."
Through the program, the Indiana Department of Transportation matches up to $1 million annually when localities invest in road and bridge repairs. Counties with populations fewer than 50,000 and cities and towns with populations fewer than 10,000 receive a 75%/25% match, while counties with populations greater than 50,000 and cities and towns with populations greater than 10,000 receive a 50%/50% match.
The CCMG offers two rounds of applications each year, with the next call for applications occurring in January of 2023.
