Through direct grants, support to state arts agencies, and national leadership initiatives, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is a critical source of federal support for orchestras nationwide. The NEA’s FY22 Grants to Organizations included 101 grants to orchestras and communities they serve.

We urge Congress to increase NEA funding to $203.55 million in FY23 to support the creation, preservation, and presentation of the arts in America through the NEA’s core grant-making programs and leadership and research initiatives.
