PAA Testimonies Urge Congress to Support NEA Appropriations

Recent Activity

In May, PAA submitted written testimonies about the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to the House and Senate appropriations subcommittees on the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies. These subcommittees make recommendations for the NEA’s budget.

PAA’s testimonies highlighted the value of the NEA’s support for the performing arts in the United States, included specific examples of PAA member organizations’ programs and services that have received recent grant support from the agency, and urged the committee to fund the agency at $155 million for fiscal year 2018.
