NASAA Answers Your Questions

As part of NASAA’s service to state arts agencies and the greater arts and cultural field, NASAA responds to requests for information on a wide variety of arts, culture and economic topics. In fiscal year 2023, NASAA staff fulfilled nearly 270 of these information requests from state and jurisdictional arts agencies (SAAs), partners and the public. Requests came in for data to help SAAs support planning, advocacy and program design as well as questions related to Final Descriptive Report requirements, among many other subjects. Thirteen states requested a special service such as commissioned research, speaking engagements or in-depth technical assistance.

The majority of requests involved topics related to federal reporting (18%), followed by questions regarding advocacy (14%). Other categories include diversity, equity and inclusion as well as SAA staffing and operations. The largest share of requests was made by SAAs (83%), but NASAA also responded to queries from regional arts organizations, the National Endowment for the Arts and other nonmembers.
