The Honeywell Foundation and Wabash River Trail each had their funding requests to the Northeast Indiana Regional Development Authority approved on Tuesday afternoon, April 11.

However, the RDA board made the river trail’s request contingent on it meeting several requirements, including having two public meetings in an attempt to iron out differences between its board and the public.

Before the RDA board dealt with the individual requests, it did have to inform all seven agencies seeking the funding that their requests would be reduced by 2 percent in order to come under the $42 million in funds allocated to it from the Indiana Economic Development Corp.
