Today President Trump signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017, which NASAA told you about on Monday. This budget includes funding the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) at $149.8 million, a $2 million increase from the previous level, through September 30.

This is great news for arts advocates—but we must continue our bipartisan efforts to secure NEA funding for FY2018. Please see NASAA’s Advocacy Tools for compelling arguments and actions to support the NEA and its work.
