The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse
TRAC was established in 1989 as a research center jointly sponsored by the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and the Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University. It has offices at Syracuse University, in Washington, D.C. and a branch office on the west coast. TRAC's work has been supported by numerous foundations such as the Rockefeller Family Fund, the New York Times Company Foundation, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Carnegie Foundation, Ford Foundation, JEHT Foundation, Haas Foundation, the Beldon Fund, Herb Block Foundation, and the Open Society Institute. Additionally, support from Syracuse University, research grants and contracts, individual donations, and user fees (see Why Do We Charge?) help offset the costs of providing services to academics, reporters, attorneys and others.
