Take Action Now! Support Supplemental Funding for the Humanities

  • 1.  Take Action Now! Support Supplemental Funding for the Humanities

    Posted Mar 20, 2020 02:50 PM

    March 20, 2020-Yesterday afternoon, in collaboration with the Federation of State Humanities Councils, our colleagues at the National Humanities Alliance (NHA) submitted a letter to both the House and Senate Appropriations Committees outlining the many challenges that humanities institutions and educators are facing due to the COVID-19 crisis. They urged them to include supplemental funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities to alleviate these strains as part of Congress' next stimulus package. Learn more here.

    Please help by taking action and asking your Members of Congress to support significant supplemental funding for the humanities.

    The stimulus bills are moving very quickly on the Hill, so please take action today.

    NHA also urged other federal relief to ensure the viability of nonprofit humanities organizations and educators, both in K-12 and higher education, including paid leave and unemployment relief provisions for employees, self-employed workers, and contract educators.

    Please take action today to support the humanities!
