Please write your Members of Congress and ask them to support the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) by opposing cuts to the agency’s funding in the FY 2013 House Interior Appropriations bill.

 

The bill was marked up by the Interior Appropriations Subcommittee on June 20th and includes $132 million in funding for NEH. This represents a $14 million cut from the FY 2012 level of $146 million and is $22 million less than the President’s budget request of $154 million.

<<From AHA email: “ In the broader context that we historians consider significant, the NEH budget was $172 million in 1995, and is approximately one-third of its level three decades ago when adjusted for inflation. “>>
