On January 24, 2024, TARP was awarded a $25,000 grant from the Art and Mary Schmuckal Family Foundation. 
On February 2, 2024, Eugene Allen, representing the Village of Thompsonville and Chuck Kraus, representing TARP, were present at The Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians 2% grant award ceremony held at the Grand Traverse Resort to receive a $15,000 grant award to help fund the TARP Trailhead Project. Of the 75 grant applications received by the Tribal Council, 45 applicants were selected to receive a total of $813,546.66.
With these recent grant awards and an additional recently received contribution of $5,000 from a very generous Colfax Township couple, TARP has raised slightly over half of the total estimated cost of the project!
