STATEHOUSE (Jan. 7, 2021) — The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is now accepting applications for the Community Crossings Matching Grant (CCMG) program, said State Sen. Mike Gaskill (R-Pendleton).
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 $830 million in state matching funds for local construction projects.
"With the economic impact COVID-19 has had on our district, every penny counts," Gaskill said. "This grant program has proven to be a great financial resource for countless communities across our state, and I strongly urge communities in our district to apply."
Through the program, INDOT matches up to $1 million annually when localities invest in road and bridge repairs. Counties with populations of fewer than 50,000 and cities and towns with populations of 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.
Applications for this round of funding will be accepted through Friday, Jan. 29, at 5 p.m.
