The Sacred Sites Committee met in October to award almost $200,000 in 13 grants to historic religious institutions throughout New York State, from City Island, Bronx, to East Aurora, near Buffalo. These grants included $48,250 in eight Sacred Sites Grants and five Robert W. Wilson Sacred Sites Challenge Grants totaling $150,000.

The five Robert W. Wilson Sacred Sites Grants were awarded to four congregations in New York City and one in Ithaca.
