Trump’s Latest Budget Proposes Eliminating the NEA (Again)
www.artsy.net: The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is once again slated for elimination under President Donald Trump’s 2018 budget proposal, released on Tuesday. As part of a $3.6 trillion slash to federal spending over 10 years—including major cuts to Medicaid and other social safety net programs—the arts agency would see both direct grantmaking and funding to states zeroed out. To ensure an orderly shutdown, the NEA would receive $29 million for salary and administrative costs through fiscal year 2018.
