Dear Friends in the Arts and Humanities,
As you may have heard, President Trump has released his proposed federal budget for fiscal year 2018. The budget as presented would eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), along with cuts to other federal agencies. NEA funding supports the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities' (CAH) grantmaking efforts, accounting for just over three percent of CAH's FY17 budget. CAH receives no funding from the NEH.
