STATEHOUSE May 5, 2021) — Communities in Senate District 26 will receive nearly $5.4 million to improve roads and bridges through the Community Crossings Matching Grant Program (CCMG), 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 $930 million in state matching funds for local construction projects.
In Senate District 26, the following communities received grants:
"I am pleased to see communities across Senate District 26 take advantage of this financial resource and look forward to seeing the positive impact these funds will have on our local infrastructure," Gaskill said. "I commend local leaders and planners for their efforts to secure this funding."
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.
