INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana ranks as the top state in the nation for its infrastructure, according to CNBC. This enviable position comes as we work to continuously invest in safe and functioning roads and bridges, and do it all without going into debt. Indiana is not going to pump the breaks anytime soon and local communities can reap the benefits. Cities, towns and counties can once again partner with the state to make much-needed improvements to their infrastructure.

Already, Hoosier communities received more than $1 billion in Community Crossings Matching Grants. This is a wise investment as our roads require continuous upkeep, and a strong infrastructure is critical to our growth and quality of life.  To learn more about Community Crossings Matching Grants and to apply for the next round of funding ahead of the Aug. 31 deadline, visit
