Today, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) was one of the first agencies in the federal government to release grant guidelines for applying for economic stimulus and job recovery arts funds. In order to get money out to the arts field as quickly as possible, the NEA is fast-tracking the process. The deadline for applying is
April 2, 2009, with grants being awarded as early as July 1, 2009.
This current news proves that arts advocacy works.
The voices of arts advocates were united in helping to secure these federal funds and educate government leaders about the vital role the arts play in our economy and country. Help us continue the momentum of this success by demonstrating to congressional leaders that the arts are a priority for every American.
Coordinated by Americans for the Arts, the 22nd Annual National Arts Advocacy Day brings together leaders in the arts, education, entertainment, and policy to develop support for increased public funding for the arts. Hear from congressional leaders and acclaimed artists including remarks from 11-time Grammy Award-winning recording artist Linda Ronstadt at the Congressional Arts Breakfast on Capitol Hill.
- Let your voice be heard when you visit your members of Congress to make the case for the arts and arts education.
- Take advantage of opportunities to network with colleagues from your state and across the country.
- Increase your knowledge of how to advocate and influence decision-makers.
