Community Crossings Matching Grant Program available to municipalities for bridge and road repairs

STATEHOUSE – The Indiana General Assembly passed legislation in 2016 to create a program to help cities, counties and towns across our state improve their roads and bridges – the Community Crossings Matching Grant Program.

Through the program, the Indiana Department of Transportation matches up to $1 million when localities invest in road and bridge repairs. Counties with populations below 50,000 and cities and towns with populations below 10,000 receive a 75/25 percent match, while counties with populations greater than 50,000 and cities and towns with populations greater than 10,000 receive a 50/50 percent match.

Monetary awards are based on need, traffic volume, local support and regional economic significance.

Since 2016, the program has awarded communities across the state with $300 million to enhance roads and bridges.

Applications can be submitted beginning Monday, Aug. 6. The submission deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28.
