$40k of new grants support mission and programs
Trailnet is excited to announce two new grants supporting our work to improve walking and biking in the community in 2022. Together these grants represent $40,000 of new funding to support our mission and programs.
P. Wayne & Jane B. Goode Foundation
Trailnet received $25,000 from the P. Wayne & Jane B. Goode Foundation to support our planning, education and advocacy efforts. Wayne Goode was a former Missouri state legislator who also served the region as president of Trailnet’s board. Wayne passed away in the fall of 2020 and we appreciate the support of his family’s foundation and the lasting impact this grant offers.
U.S. Energy Foundation
Trailnet has also received a $15,000 grant from the U.S. Energy Foundation to assist the City of St. Louis with community engagement efforts. These efforts are focused on modifying streets to be safer and lower-stress for people walking and biking. This effort is in partnership with the Natural Resources Defense Council and is aimed at reducing the environmental effects of car-dependency by making walking and biking safer and more accessible.
