Tell Your Members of Congress to Support Increased Federal Arts Funding

Right now, Congress is making decisions that will affect next year’s funding for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and it needs to hear from you!

We can increase NEA and NEH funding to $204 million next year if we get enough support in Congress.

Call your Senators today to ask that they sign their names in support of funding the NEA and NEH at $204 million in FY23. Ask them to join the arts appropriations request letter led by Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI).

The NEA and NEH support job opportunities for union creative professionals in every state while providing all Americans with access to enriching programs that lift up local economies. Additionally, the NEA and NEH are critical to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the arts, entertainment, and media industries.

Taking action today helps get us closer to our ultimate goal of restoring the NEA and NEH to a full funding level of $331 million, or $1 per capita.
