Newsletter: First Call for Community Crossing Matching Grant Projects (Indiana)

Newsletter Header

The first Call for Projects in the 2024 Community Crossing Matching Grants (CCMG) program is underway and a second Call for Projects is expected in July.

Indiana cities, towns and counties applying for up to a $1.5 million grant are on the clock to update their required Transportation Asset Management Plan (TAMP) and get approval from the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP). CCMG applicants must also comply with the Title VI and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) nondiscrimination and accessibility requirements.

The first Call for Projects closes at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 31. Last November, 188 Indiana cities, towns, and counties received a combined $91.5 million in state grants for local road projects through Community Crossings.

The Town of Uniondale recently completed a CCMG project on Main Street and is planning to apply for another grant in 2024. With a population less than 300, the CCMG grant of 75 percent was huge for the $85,000 project.

Fleis & VandenBrink (F&V) assisted Uniondale with its CCMG application in the fall of 2022 and in completing a 900-foot mill and resurfacing project on Main Street from Otto Avenue to Hancock Street.
