STATEHOUSE (Dec. 7, 2022) — Communities in Senate District 27 will receive more than $1.6 million to improve roads and bridges through the Community Crossings Matching Grant Program (CCMG), said State Sen. Jeff Raatz (R-Richmond).
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 its enactment, the program has awarded more than $1.1 billion in state matching funds for local construction projects.
In Senate District 27, the following communities received grants:
"Maintaining and improving the infrastructure in our communities is important in supporting a high quality of life for Hoosiers," Raatz said. "I am pleased to see many of our communities receive Community Crossings Grants because when we invest in the future of our roads and bridges, we help ensure safe and seamless commutes for travelers."
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 greater than 50,000 and cities and towns with populations greater than 10,000 receive a 50%/50% match.
The CCMG offers two rounds of applications each year, with the next call for applications occurring in January of 2023.
