Eliminating Federal Arts Funding Would Affect Nevada Statewide

Eliminating Federal Arts Funding Would Affect Nevada Statewide

The National Endowment for the Arts is at risk.The independent federal agency could lose its funding next year if Congress approves President Trump’s proposed budget.In Nevada, the NEA funds nearly a million dollars in creative endeavors throughout the state each year.Ally Haynes-Hamblen is the director of City of Las Vegas Office of Cultural Affairs. She said the office gets about $18,000 from the NEA each year. While the amount doesn't seem like a lot, she said it is used mostly for arts education and outreach to the city's children and young people.
