Hendricks County legislators encourage communities in Central Indiana to apply for the Community Crossings Matching Grant Program to help fund local road and bridge projects.
State Rep. Greg Steuerwald (R-Avon) co-authored a 2016 law creating the program to help more cities, towns and counties fund local infrastructure projects through preservation, road construction, intersection improvements, guardrail replacements and signage.
According to State Rep. Bob Behning (R-Indianapolis), who also supported the creation of this program, Hoosier communities are eligible for a state match up to $1 million annually, and the Indiana Department of Transportation opens applications twice a year.
Due to COVID-19, this year’s second round of calls for projects was postponed in July, but Gov. Eric Holcomb announced the program will resume. Local governments can apply for the program online at http://in.gov/indot/4013.htm with forms forms due by 5 p.m. EST on Oct. 23.forms due by 5 p.m.
