About the Partners in Preservation Program
The National Museum of the American Indian–New York has been selected to participate in Partners in Preservation, a program from American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation to help educate New Yorkers about the importance of historic sites. Through Partners in Preservation, the National Museum of the American Indian in New York has the opportunity to receive a grant for historic restoration based on popular vote.
American Express, partnering with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is committing $3 million in preservation grants to historic places in New York City through its community-based program, Partners in Preservation. April 26–May 21, 2012, the public will be invited to vote on Facebook and also through the Partners in Preservation web link for its favorite historic places, choosing from a diverse slate of 40 sites in the New York City area. Everyone is invited to vote (one vote per person per day). The three historic places that receive the most votes are guaranteed funding.
Additional grants will be awarded to a number of the other sites after review by American Express, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and an advisory committee composed of New York civic and preservation leaders.
