STATEHOUSE (April 9, 2020) — Allen County and the City of Fort Wayne will each receive $1 million 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 it was put into place, the program has awarded more than $738 million in state matching funds for local construction projects.
"I'm pleased to see our local officials taking advantage of the funding from CCMG," Brown said. "This program is a great way to improve local infrastructure, and I'm excited to see the impact it will have here in Senate District 15."
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 of greater than 50,000 and cities and towns with populations of greater than 10,000 receive a 50%/50% match.
