Now is the time to contact your Members of Congress to at least match the President’s request by appropriating this increased funding for the NEA and NEH. Please urge your Members of Congress to support a budget of at least $211 million each for the NEA and NEH. Contact your Member of Congress today.

New Jersey receives over $1.5 million each year in NEA grants including over $1 million to the NJ State Council on the Arts through the State Partnership Program. It is important to preserve this federal support that is matched by the state and by private donations to grant recipients.
