City of Charlestown Receives $620,925 Community Crossings Grant for Infrastructure Improvements
The City of Charlestown is pleased to announce the receipt of a Community Crossings grant in the amount of $620,925.41. Indiana Department of Transportation Commissioner, Joe McGuinness, along with Governor Eric Holcomb announced this week that 241 Indiana cities, towns, and counties will receive a combined $101 million in state matching funds for local road projects through this component of the Governor’s Next Level Roads program.
“This grant will enable us to pave areas of the city such as the Pleasant Ridge neighborhood and Industrial Park that have been neglected for a period of years and I’m thankful for the award,” said Charlestown Mayor Treva Hodges.
“It’s especially rewarding to know that we’ve received this award in a year that has presented budget hurdles due to the impact of COVID-19 and I’m very appreciative of our staff members who worked hard to pull the application together so that we could be considered in this round.”
The Community Crossings grant makes the second major competitive award received by the city this year. Charlestown was previously awarded a $250,000 OCRA grant for small business COVID-19 relief, bringing Charlestown's total grant funding received this year to $870,925.41.
