President’s FY20 Budget Calls for Termination of Cultural Agencies Again

Americans for the Arts Action Fund

Nina Ozlu Tunceli, Executive Director of the Americans for the Arts Action Fund, made the following request. Let’s help.

“For a third-straight year, the Trump Administration has proposed to eliminate the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and the Corporation of Public Broadcasting (CPB). As misdirected as this proposal is, we are confident that Congress – as it has done in the past two fiscal years – will again reject this short-sighted budget request in a bipartisan, bicameral manner, and increase funding for the Endowments.”

Will you contact your member of Congress today to urge them to reject the president’s proposal?  

In the past two years, Congress not only dismissed these initial calls for termination, but in fact gave steady increases in funding to several cultural agencies.”

The Arts Action Fund has been building bipartisan support for the arts as well as delivering a unifed message to Congress. Since our founding in 2004, an extra $200 million has been appropriated to arts related funding.

Let’s stand up for the arts in America.
