NEA and NEH Threatened by Trump Administration
January 20, 2017
The proposed elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities has sent shockwaves through creative communities throughout the nation. Although the NEA, the NEH, and Corporation for Public Broadcasting occupy less than 1% of the overall annual budget, the organizations have come under threat of extinction. The Hill reports that in addition to the privatization of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the NEA and NEH would be completely eliminated with the proposed Trump Administration plan. Petitions are currently being circulated to stop these cuts from taking place. Concerned individuals are also encouraged to call their Congressional senators and representatives.
