Washington County will receive $1 million in state matching grants for road and bridge improvement projects. 

In total, more than 220 towns, cities and counties will receive over $107 million in state funding through the Community Crossings Matching Grant Program.

Funds, awarded twice a year, are for road and bridge preservation, road reconstruction, intersection improvements, guardrail replacements and signage, and can cover material costs for chip sealing and crack filling operations.

The Community Crossings Matching Grant, established by the Indiana General Assembly in 2016, aims to advance community infrastructure projects, strengthen local transportation networks and improve Indiana’s roads and bridges.

Since its enactment, the program has awarded more than $1 billion in state matching funds for local construction projects.

Through the program, the Indiana Department of Transportation matches up to $1 million annually when localities invest in road and bridge repairs.

Counties with populations fewer than 50,000 and cities and towns with populations fewer than 10,000 receive a 75%/25% match, while counties with populations greater than 50,000 and cities and towns with populations greater than 10,000 receive a 50%/50% match.

The CCMG offers two rounds of applications each year, with the next call for applications occurring in July of 2022.
