STATEHOUSE - State Representative Phyllis Pond announced the town of Grabill was awarded $1,176,000  for the 2nd Street project and the town of Huntertown was awarded $1,605,000 for the Carroll Road project.


These grants are Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Group IV fund grants. This grant, along with municipal funding, will be used to improve the local roads.


"These towns deserve these funds and I am pleased FHWA and INDOT see the value in spending money in our community," said Rep. Pond. "These grants will make it easier to get around town and improve our quality of life."


The FHWA funding comes with strict stipulations, which must be followed in order to be reimbursed for the projects. The FHWA funds cannot be used on a project if the grant is more than 80 percent of the projects total cost. Also, a schedule must be maintained in order to complete the projects in a timely manner.


"I am grateful knowing that with these grants, we will improve our community's roads and put Hoosiers to work," said Rep. Pond.
