PROPOSED NEA CUTS

COULD MAIM  THE ARTS,

KILL JOBS, AND LEAVE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR YOUNG SUFFERING A SLOW DEATH

We are all having to make tough choices, but the reality is that the entire National
Endowment for the Arts -- all of the federally funded arts that reach communities
in every state of our country, from sea to shining sea -- receives less funding
than your average three- star general running a smallish project team in a medium-sized
office in Washington. When the NEA was in its heyday in the early nineties, its
budget was the same as what it cost to build a single Minuteman II missile.

So--it is NOT about money. The NEA is a drop in the bucket. It's about priorities.
And rethinking what we need in order to be a country worth fighting for.

Please take two minutes and send a message to your elected officials today in support
of public funding for the arts.

The  House Appropriations Committee has passed an Interior Appropriations  bill
that could lead to a cut of $20 million to the budget of the  National Endowment
for the Arts (NEA). The bill would cut the NEA's  budget from its current $155
million to $135 million, This would be the  deepest cut since 1995, when the NEA's
budget was $170 million. (See below for details.)

The argument we always hear is that the government should not be in the arts and
culture business and that the private sector will take care of it just fine. The
reality is that  the NEA has consistently supported us in good and bad times, our
partner programs, local communities, schools, and even other funders. We would not
be here without them.

Please contact our officials today.

More information:


* The  arts community recognizes the shared sacrifice being asked of all  federal
agencies to help reduce our national debt and is willing to do  our part; however,
this budget proposal represents a disproportionate  cut.
* The  staff of the bipartisan Congressional Arts Caucus have told us that  this
proposed cut would reduce the number of NEA grants by up to 733  grants, or 30
percent. It would also curtail the scope of the agency's  outreach by reducing the
total number of Americans served by about 27.3  million (28 percent), and the number
of youth by 2.7 million (27 percent).
* NEA  dollars are a critical lifeline in helping state and local budgets  survive
as philanthropic dollars are dwindling. On average, every $1  that the NEA gives
in grants generates $7 in investment from sources  outside of the federal government.
* The  NEA budget is a miniscule part (only about 0.5 percent) of the larger  Interior
bill, which also funds other agencies including the Interior  Department, National
Wildfire Service and provisions of the  Environmental Protection Act.
