FY14 Arts in Education Funding Advances in the Senate

Recent Activity

The Senate Appropriations Committee moved forward a recommendation for $27 million in FY14 funding for the Arts in Education program at the U.S. Department of Education. Ongoing leadership by education appropriations subcommittee Chairman Tom Harkin (D-IA) and other Senate supporters has preserved Arts in Education funding over the past several years, despite the program’s elimination in the House and Obama Administration’s budget plans. The U.S. Department of Education will soon announce a new round of multi-year grant awards made possible through Arts in Education funds.
