Fishers to Receive a One Million Dollar Grant from IDoT

In the first of the Community Crossing Matching Grants from the the Indiana Department of Transportation, the City of Fishers will receive one million dollars. This grant, announced this month, will provide over $133 million in funding to towns, cities, and counties across Indiana. There was a total of 224 recipients that included Fishers, Noblesville, and Hamilton County.

In order to receive the grant, communities had to agree to put up matching funds of either 25% or 50%. Larger municipalities such as Fishers (with populations of 50,000 or larger) are expected to provide the larger matching fund of 50%. Funds are to be applied to local road projects, or more specifically to improve local roads and bridges. Projects can include road and bridge preservation projects with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance in connection with these projects. They can also be used for chip sealing and crack filing operations as well. The funds are to be used for construction.

While a little over $133 million is provided in this round of grants, over $1 billion has been provided sine 2016 through the twice-a-year allocations. The next call for requests will be in July.

  • Fishers received $1,000,000.
  • Noblesville received $1,000,000.
  • Hamilton County received $1,000,000.
  • Zionsville received $466,945.19.
  • Carmel and Westfield were not on the list.
