The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) together account for a paltry .006% of the $3.9 trillion federal budget, yet they are under a very serious threat! The Washington Post put this in stunning perspective in this graph.
Discussions regarding the defunding or complete elimination of these sister agencies are extremely alarming. Both agencies provide vital funding for arts and cultural institutions in all 50 states. There are hundreds of reasons why we should fight for these agencies – from veteran art therapy programs to local art programs for at-risk youth, and more.
