(COLUMBUS, IN) - Columbus-based diesel engine maker Cummins, Inc. will receive $54 million dollars from the federal stimulus package to expand existing projects designed to increase fuel-efficiency.

Cummins will direct the funds toward existing research on greening heavy-duty truck engines. The grants will fund 160 jobs at Cummins.

Fort Wayne's Navistar will also receive $37 million dollars from the grant, which will create 200 jobs.

Of the $184 million dollars in stimulus money assigned around the country Monday, Indiana companies will receive roughly half.

Cummins and Navistar will be expected to match the stimulus grants over the next four years.
