National September 11 Memorial & Museum receives $2.5 million grant from National Park Service
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -

WASHINGTON – The National Park Service (NPS) today announced it has awarded the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City a $2.5 million 9/11 Memorial Act grant. The funding will provide critical support for the continued operation, maintenance and security of the memorial and museum.

“This year marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks and 10 years of the memorial honoring the bravery, sacrifice, and lives lost,” said NPS Deputy Director Shawn Benge. “This grant helps ensure this memorial is maintained for the almost 52 million visitors to date, including 9/11 victim family members, first responders and veterans, to learn about and honor the lives lost in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.”

Located at the World Trade Center in New York City, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center site, the Pentagon, and in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993. The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history.

About the funding
As authorized and funded by Congress, the Secretary of the Interior can award a single competitive grant per year for the operation and maintenance of a memorial commemorating the victims of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, and the victims of the attack on the World Trade Center on February 26, 1993. Eligible memorials are required to offer free admission to active and retired members of the military, registered first responders to the 9/11 attacks, and family members of victims of the attacks, in addition to offering free admission hours to the general public at least once per week.
