Two local organizations are among recipients of $65,630 in grants from the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor.

Explore & More Children’s Museum was awarded $12,000 to plan and design an interactive exhibit on the Erie Canal for its planned opening at Canalside in 2016. The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site Foundation received $5,000 to develop public programming and invest in professional development.

The grants were made possible, in part, by funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
