On Main Street

Main Streets are a unique and essential part of our nation’s character and indeed, our collective history. For well over a hundred years, Main Streets have served as microcosms of their respective towns, reflecting the spirit of the people who built them.

Partnering with Main Street America, we’ve created a grant fund that presents a unique opportunity for eligible Main Street communities to create meaningful and memorable experiences for community members, centered by the total eclipse. This program is intentionally designed for Main Street towns to actively engage residents with science.

Main Street America has been helping revitalize older and historic commercial districts for more than 40 years. Today it is a network of more than 1,600 neighborhoods and communities, rural and urban, who share both a commitment to place and to building stronger communities through preservation-based economic development.
