After 9/11 anniversary, House approves grants for Ground Zero memorial

The U.S. House of Representatives voted to provide federal funds for the upkeep of the national memorials to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 at the Pentagon, Shankville, PA, and in New York.

The 9/11 Memorial Act authorizes up to $25 million a year in federal grants to maintain the memorials and to be used for security, day-to-day operations, and educational programs.
