Please take a moment to thank Governor Murphy for appropriating $31.9 million in the New Jersey State Budget for FY24, and ask your state legislators to support this level of annual state funding. The budget also contains a modest $2.2 million increase for the NJ Cultural Trust.

ArtPride NJ continues to advocate for recovery funds through the American Rescue Plan. S2800/A4233 will provide the support needed to sustain post pandemic recovery. Your communication now will remind our elected officials how important state funds are for arts and culture are to communities throughout New Jersey.
