Explore our map to find out what's possible.

INDOT recently issued a call for projects regarding the Community Crossings Matching Grant (CCMG) Program. The call for Projects will open Monday, January 3, 2022, and close on Friday, January 28, 2022. Clark Dietz can help you prepare for CCMG and make certain you have everything in place to ensure your eligibility.

One eligibility requirement for a Local Public Agency (LPA) is to have an approved ADA Transition and Title VI Plans with INDOT. There are many cities, towns, and counties in Indiana as it relates to Title VI and ADA compliance. In order to receive any federal, state, and even local funding, the LPA must file with INDOT the policies necessary to assure that they comply with Title VI and ADA. If non-compliant, the LPA will not be eligible to receive funds from INDOT, including both federal aid and Community Crossings funding. Clark Dietz has assisted communities with ADA and Title VI compliance requirements and can assist you as well!

For CCMG funding, the LPA must also have an approved Asset Management Plan (AMP) for roads and/or bridges through the Indiana Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP). Asset Management plans dated between August 1, 2021, and December 1, 2021, will receive an approval letter (“complete” Review Checklist) from Indiana LTAP. This will enable their eligibility for the CCMG 2022-1 and 2022-2 call for projects. If not completed during August and December, the LPA will not be eligible for the 2022 calls for projects. These missed funding opportunities can greatly affect a community’s maintenance or project schedule.
