Your vote can help historic Ebenezer Baptist Church win grant money

June 2,2016

Now that primary day has come and gone in Georgia, it’s time to move on to another big election:

Vote “Partners in Preservation,” early and often.

Launched on Wednesday by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express in honor of the National Park Service’s Centennial year, the campaign will award a total of $2 million in grants to help preserve historic sites that are located within national park units. The public can vote on which of the nominated sites — there are 20 of them in all — should get their requests fully funded. The sites with fewer votes will still get smaller portions of the $2 million pie and each site also will receive a $10,000 participation grant.
