INDIANAPOLIS – Governor Eric J. Holcomb and INDOT Commissioner Joe McGuinness announced the next call for projects in the Community Crossings grant program is now open.
Projects that are eligible for funding through Community Crossings include road resurfacing, bridge rehabilitation, road reconstruction, and Americans with Disabilities Act compliance in connection with road projects. Material costs for chip sealing and crack filling operations are also eligible for funds.
Projects submitted to the Indiana Department of Transportation for funding will be evaluated based on need, traffic volume, local support, the impact on connectivity and mobility within the community, and regional economic significance.
Funding for this call for projects combines existing revenue available in the state’s local road and bridge matching grant fund and anticipated revenues during the first three months of the 2021 calendar year.
Community Crossings is open to all local government units in the State of Indiana.
-Cities and towns with a population of fewer than 10,000 will receive funds using a 75/25 match.
-Cities and towns with a population of greater than 10,000 will receive funds using a 50/50 match.
-Counties with a population of fewer than 50,000 will receive funds using a 75/25 match.
-Counties with a population of greater than 50,000 will receive funds using a 50/50 match.
Over the last four years, the state has awarded more than $830 million in matching funds to support local road and bridge projects around Indiana. Long-term funding for Community Crossings is part of House Enrolled Act 1002, passed by the legislature and signed into law by Gov. Holcomb in April 2017.
All application materials must be submitted by Friday, January 29, 2021, at 5 p.m. ET. Communities receiving funding for projects will be notified in late winter or early spring.
