House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-KY) announced plans for a Continuing Resolution that would reduce spending by $74 billion below President Obama’s 2011 budget request for the remainder of the year. This proposal would cut over $12 million from the National Endowment for Humanities (NEH)!
As one of the largest funders of humanities programs in the US, NEH provides critical support for research, education, preservation, and public programs in the humanities through grants to a wide range of educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and scholars nationwide.
Write to your representative today to let members of Congress know WHY the humanities and NEH are important to you, their constituent.
