STATEHOUSE (Oct. 14, 2019) — Communities in Senate District 45 will receive nearly $3.9 million to improve roads and bridges through the Community Crossings Matching Grant Program (CCMG), said State Sen. Chris Garten (R-Charlestown).
The CCMG was established by the Indiana General Assembly in 2016, and 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 nearly $500 million in state matching funds for local construction projects.
In Senate District 45, the following municipalities and counties received grants:
“The Community Crossings Matching Grant Program is a great opportunity for Hoosier municipalities and counties to commit to the future of local infrastructure,” Garten said. “I’m eager to see the positive impact these projects will have on Senate District 45.”
Through the program, the Indiana Department of Transportation matches up to $1 million 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 at least 50,000 and cities and towns with populations of at least 10,000 receive a 50%/50% match.
