Speak up today! Congress advances NEA funding this week

June 14, 2016

The House Interior Subcommittee has approved a $2 million increase for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in FY2017, matching the President's budget request. Today, the Senate Interior Subcommittee approved an increase of $500,000. Every dollar matters - and so does your voice - as both the House and Senate move the NEA's funding forward for further consideration. The full House Appropriations Committee acts tomorrow, and the Senate Appropriations Committee plans to take up the bill on Thursday. Now is the time for you, as a constituent of these key decision makers, to weigh in and remind your members of Congress just how important the NEA is in bringing the transformative power of the arts to all corners of the country.
