(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana Department of Transportation is accepting applications from rural cities, towns and counties for federal transportation funding.

Rural communities may submit any local project eligible for federal highway funds, including bridge, road, safety, trail and Safe Routes to School projects.

INDOT programs 25 percent of its federal highway appropriation each year to fund larger local transportation projects. Metropolitan Planning Organizations distribute federal highway funds to local communities within the state's larger urbanized areas while INDOT distributes such funds outside MPO areas. To receive federal funding, typically communities must pay 20 percent in local matching funds.

Local public agency employees certified as an "Employee in Responsible Charge" must submit applications electronically using INDOT's website. Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Dec. 13 and project awards will be announced no later than Jan. 31, 2014.

More information is available on INDOT's website at
