NASAA Notes: March 2013

State Arts Agency Revenues, Fiscal Year 2013

Twice each year, NASAA collects comprehensive information on state arts agency (SAA) revenues. These data help members put their own budgets in context and provide accurate information about SAAs to partners and the public. The most recent survey collected details about budgets for fiscal years 2012 and 2013.

NASAA’s most recent report, State Arts Agency Revenues, Fiscal Year 2013, delivers comprehensive data and detailed tables describing SAA funding within the context of national trends. Fiscal year 2013 marks the first time in four years that SAAs have received an aggregate budget increase. Between FY2012 and FY2013, SAAs gained $19.2 million in total legislative appropriations, resulting in a 7.4% increase.

NASAA provides customized data from this survey as a research service to members. The topics of such data requests have included regional comparisons of appropriations changes, effects of proposed cuts on per capita rankings, the composition of legislative appropriations and long-term appropriations trends.

If you need customized information to answer questions from your council, legislators, the press or the public, or are just interested in learning more about legislative appropriations, contact Ryan Stubbs or Henry Clapp. For an overview of FY2013 SAA legislative appropriations, consult the press release, the full State Arts Agency Revenues, Fiscal Year 2013 report, or the State Budget Center. Additional information on SAA funding and why government should support the arts is available on the NASAA website.
