MGTA receives grant from Community Fund of the South Cumberland Plateau


We were thrilled and honored to learn Sunday night that we have received a $15,000 grant from the Community Fund of the South Cumberland Plateau (CFSCP). This grant will help us in our two major goals: acquiring property along the Mountain Goat Railroad railbed, and constructing the trail.

Janice Thomas, our board president, said, “The Community Fund is doing wonderful work providing support for organizations in and around the Cumberland Plateau. It’s very affirming for us that they see what we’re doing as deserving of their collaboration.”

This is the second grant round of the CFSCP, with eleven grantees receiving over $60,000 in funding. For more on the Community Fund, go to
