A2RU Reports Increase for NEH/NEA/CPB/IMLS

Dear Colleagues,

As you probably know by now, the NEA, NEH, CPB, and IMLS budgets look like they will be retained, and in most instances slightly increased for the rest of the fiscal year. This is fantastic on all fronts and I can’t help but feel that a2ru played a small part, as did each citizen who made calls and wrote letters. Truly a bipartisan victory. Below is a nice chart outlining the omnibus proposal budget numbers for many agencies of interest for FY17.

Thanks to all!
