STATEHOUSE (Oct. 10, 2019) — McCordsville will receive a total of $633,035.24 to improve roads and bridges through the Community Crossings Matching Grant Program (CCMG), said State Sen. Michael Crider (R-Greenfield).
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.
“I am eager to see the positive impact this grant will provide McCordsville as they work to improve local infrastructure,” Crider said. “I commend local officials for their efforts in securing this funding to help our community continue to be a great place to live and raise a family.”
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.
