Preserving Women’s Legacy Grants provide official Indiana Main Street program organizations with funds to discover, preserve and activate locations that tell stories about women’s contributions in Indiana. Grant-funded projects should lead to outcomes that are tangible and permanent and that promote visitation to the Main Street district.

The Preserving Women's Legacy Grants are a program of the Indiana Women’s Suffrage Centennial and are presented by Indiana Humanities and the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA).
