The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) are critical to the recovery of the arts and entertainment industries. The NEA and NEH support job opportunities for union members in every state, as well as for local economies devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic. An NEA study found that the arts sector shrank twice as much as the rest of the economy during the pandemic.
Right now, decisions are being made in Congress that will affect next year’s funding for the NEA and the NEH. We can increase NEA and NEH funding to $204 million next year if there is enough support in Congress. Please join us in urging Congress to invest in the arts.
Make sure your Congressional representatives know that you support increased funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
