The William Penn Foundation continued its amazing support of the Circuit in an announcement made yesterday for two grants; one for $7 million to the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission to “support final design and engineering work for trail projects, ensuring that selected trails are shovel-ready for construction.” The DVRPC grant will also include some construction capital and will leverage millions of dollars of available public infrastructure funding for trail completion.

The second grant is to the Rails to Trails Conservancy for $1.6 million, over three years,  “to implement a communications program to build awareness of this significant regional amenity. The campaign will emphasize how and where people can connect to the Circuit for recreation, commuting and fitness use and how they can support the completion of the overall system through advocacy and giving.”
