In 2018, the National Trust, American Express, and Main Street America headed back to Main Street for our annual Partners in Preservation campaignwith a focus on sites that celebrate the fight for equality. Each of the sites featured in this campaign have played a role in the development of a more diverse nation.

On October 29, we announced the winners of the 2018 Partners in Preservation campaign. The 11 winning sites received a total of $1.6 million in grants to fund their respective preservation projects. At the outset of the campaign, an additional $400,000 was allocated to the 20 Main Street communities that participated in the program to increase public awareness of the importance of these historic places and build grassroots support for the participating Main Street districts.
