The National Women’s Hall of Fame has been named a finalist in the Partners in Preservation grant program.
The grant would help fund the rehabilitation of the NWHF’s new headquarters in Seneca Falls.
Once complete, it will roughly double its current capacity and increase its exhibit, event and programming spaces substantially.
However, in order to win the available funding, the Women’s Hall of Fame needs to rank among the top public vote recipients during a month-long competition between 20 finalists which begins today at VoteYourMainStreet.org.
The Partners in Preservation program — a collaboration of The National Trust for Historic Preservation, Main Street America and American Express — will distribute $2 million to projects across the nation via a public participation process.
The program is designed to raise awareness of work happening across the U.S. to revitalize main streets and neighborhoods in small towns, mid-sized cities and urban centers.
