INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana has awarded $100.2 million in state matching funds that will go toward local road and bridge projects in more than 200 Indiana cities, towns, and counties.
The money comes through Community Crossings, a component of Governor Eric Holcomb's "Next Level Roads" program. The grants benefit 218 government entities chosen after they submitted applications in January with their plan for projects.
The initiative has provided more than $931 million in state matching funds for local construction projects since 2016.
State lawmakers identified long-term funding for Community Crossings as part of legislation passed by the legislature and signed into law by Governor Holcomb in April 2017.
