The House of Representatives will soon bring to the floor the Department of Interior appropriations bill with two floor amendments introduced by Rep. Scott Perry (PA-10) that could eliminate all National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) FY 2024 funding. The House Appropriations Committee has already cut NEA and NEH funding by 10 percent to $186 million; further cuts threaten any possibility to negotiate to the Senate’s current funding level of $207 million. Americans for the Arts urges you to reach your Member of Congress today to remind them of the importance of NEA funding to their congressional district.
