Feb 25 deadline to submit local projects for federal stimulus consideration

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Sen. Brandt Hershman (R-Wheatfield) says Senate District 7 residents could help direct federal stimulus dollars to local infrastructure projects by submitting their ideas online.

Hershman said most of Indiana’s $4.3 billion in federal stimulus is meant for roads, Medicaid, schools, unemployment and other programs.

To make best use of the monies, Gov. Mitch Daniels charged the Indiana Economic Development Corp., Indiana Office of Community & Rural Affairs and Indiana Association of Regional Councils with the task of directing the use of funds from the 2008 Supplemental Appropriations Disaster Relief Opportunity and/or American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

“To achieve long-term and short-term economic development in Indiana, a survey was created to help state and local leaders generate a comprehensive list of potential infrastructure projects, which will be used to maximize the state’s use of federal dollars,” Hershman said.

Constituents can fill out the survey online by Wednesday, Feb. 25 at http://www.bsu.edu/cber.

Hershman said the survey will take less than 10 minutes per project and it is not a grant submission process. However, he said survey participants will benefit from a thorough review of projects, which will help identify all funding streams available through several government sources.
