Over the past 2 years, American Express in partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation has given over $2 million in grants to community-based preservation projects in San Francisco, Chicago, and New Orleans.  Grant awards were determined by an expert Advisory panel of preservationists and community leaders whose deliberations were informed by public input through online voting and comments of support on http://www.partnersinpreservation.com

In 2006, 13 winning sites in the San Francisco Bay Area shared $1 million in grants, with the remaining sites receiving $5,000 awards for their participation.  These preservation projects ranged from the Fox Oakland Theater to the Tilden Park Carousel. Slated to be completed this summer,  you can check out all the updates from these projects at http://www.partnersinpreservation.com/sanfrancisco.

Last fall, our Chicagoland program brought attention to preservation projects as diverse as the Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Hall and the South Side Community Art Center.  Most of the work on these 25 sites is being done this summer and fall, but you can check out the current status of the project by clicking on the "learn more" link on each site's landing page.

This year, American Express focused its attention on Gulf Coast Recovery in the New Orleans Area. Five sites were chosen to receive grants for preservation work, with each site reflecting the unique cultural and architectural heritage that New Orleans adds to our nation's history in addition to having sustained damage during the hurricane season of 2005. Sites like the St. James African Methodist Episcopal Church in mid-city and the Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 in the Garden District illustrate the uniqueness that the Crescent City has to offer and spark the desire to preserve these resources for generations to come.

Check out the updates for all three cities today!
