President Trump just introduced his budget. We need your help NOW to tell members of Congress not to slash funding of the National Endowment for the Arts. Cutting the NEA is simply unacceptable.
The NEA’s $148 million budget funds programming in more than 16,000 communities across the United States and in every single Congressional district. It’s not just about art – it’s economics. The NEA generates a huge matching investment -- $1 of NEA direct funding is matched by up to $9 in private and other public funds. The NEA’s seed funding led to hundreds of millions of dollars being invested last year in local communities.
The undersigned demand that the current administration continue funding the NEA and recognize that the arts are a critical part of our country's economy. Art isn’t a frill or a luxury; it’s part of who we are and what connects us as a nation.
