RTC launched a new grant program in 2015 to support organizations and local governments that are implementing projects to build and improve rail-trails. Under the Doppelt Family Trail Development Fund, RTC will award a total of $85,000 per year for the next five years to qualifying projects through a competitive process. The fund was established with an $80,000 grant from Jeff Doppelt of Great Neck, New York, a long-time supporter of RTC and development of rail-trails in the United States, and an additional $20,000 donation from an anonymous donor.
