President Biden Proposes $211 million each for NEA and NEH for FY2024

Date of News Item

Thanks to arts advocates across the country, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) received an all-time high of $207 million for the current 2023 fiscal year. Now marks the beginning of the FY2024 appropriations process. The President has requested a budget increase for both the NEA and NEH to $211 million* each for FY2024.  

​​​​Americans for the Arts and Arts Action Fund Press Statement
​​While a modest increase, Americans for the Arts and the Arts Action Fund support the President’s funding request as it moves in the right direction. We urge you to contact your Members of Congress to minimally support the $211 million funding request in the FY2024 appropriations process. See our press statement.

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.
