Recently, Gov. Eric Holcomb and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announced 189 Indiana cities, towns and counties received a combined $115 million in state-matching funds for local road projects through the Community Crossings Matching Grant Program (CCMG).

These funds will be used for bridge and road preservation as well as road reconstruction projects, among other things.

The CCMG was created in 2016 through legislation passed by the Indiana General Assembly and aims to improve Indiana’s roads and bridges. Since it began, the program has awarded more than $500 million in state-matching funds for local construction projects.

This year, INDOT started offering two calls for projects per year, one in January and one in July. Communities will be eligible to apply for up to one million dollars per year during the call of their choice.

The next opportunity to apply to the CCMG is the 2019 summer call.

Building and maintaining our state’s infrastructure plays an important role in Gov. Holcomb’s Next Level Roads initiative. Over the next 20 years, the plan dedicates over $30 billion to improving Indiana’s roads and bridges elevates Indiana’s economic competitiveness.
