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. Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg).
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.
"This grant program has proven to be a great asset for communities across the state that are in need of critical infrastructure improvements with limited or reduced budgets," Leising said. "I strongly encourage communities across our district to consider applying for this financial assistance."
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.
