The National Women’s Hall of Fame has been selected as a finalist to win a $150,000 grant.
If ranked among the top vote recipients out of 20 finalists, the National Women’s Hall of Fame will use the funds to rehabilitate its new headquarters in Seneca Falls, where the American Women’s Rights Movement began with the first ever women’s rights convention.
The Women’s Hall of Fame will use these funds to expand its exhibit, event and programming spaces.
The funding would come from the Partners in Preservation grant program. This program will distribute $2 million across the country to renovate main streets and neighborhoods in small towns, cities and urban centers.
The public can vote online to decide which projects deserve a grant award. Voting will last until Oct. 24 and individuals can vote once per day. Winners will be announced Oct. 29.
