The City of Indianapolis Neighborhood Infrastructure Partnership has a $4 million pool of matching funds to award to community-based organizations for qualifying infrastructure projects. Managed by the Department of Public Works (DPW), the grants will fund neighborhood projects including sidewalks, street resurfacing, multi-use pathways, and bridges.
Fifteen organizations qualified for grants announced by the City in 2018 [PDF] including the Broad Ripple Village Association which serves as the fiscal agent for the Broad Ripple RiverWalk Task Force.
The grant is an expression of DPW support for the Task Force’s plans to construct a bi-directional multi-modal path along the north side of Broad Ripple Avenue to improve the connection between the Monon Trail and Broad Ripple Park. Conditional approval by DPW was extended through 2019 pending identification of matching funds and site feasibility. DPW letter confirming the availability of funds in 2019. PDF
