The South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism recently notified the SRS Heritage Foundation that the Foundation has been awarded a grant of $4,583.33 to finance work on a business plan for the proposed Ellenton Heritage Trail. This grant is in addition to the $15,000 Aiken County Accommodation Tax Grant received several months ago which will be spent to complete design studies for the Trail. These two grants are allowing the Foundation to accelerate work on the Trail and move toward negotiating the lease agreement with the Department of Energy.
