State Arts Agency FY2014 Revenues

Twice each year, NASAA collects comprehensive information on state arts agency revenues. These data help members put their own budgets in context and provide accurate information about state arts agencies to partners and the public. The most recent survey collected details about budgets for fiscal years 2013 and 2014.

NASAA’s latest report, State Arts Agency Revenues, Fiscal Year 2014, delivers comprehensive data and detailed tables describing state arts agency funding within the context of national trends. Fiscal year 2014 marks the second year in a row that state arts agencies have received an aggregate budget increase. Between FY2013 and FY2014, state arts agencies gained $29.1 million in total legislative appropriations. These funds, at $306.6 million for FY2014, equate to an investment of $0.96 per capita.

NASAA provides customized data from this survey as a research service to members. Topics of member data requests have included regional comparisons of appropriations changes, effects of proposed increases or cuts in 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 or more details of FY2014 state arts agency legislative appropriations, consult the press release, the report or the State Budget Center. Additional information on SAA Funding and why government should support the arts (just updated!) is available on the NASAA website.
