March 26, 2020-The National Humanities Alliance notes that the supplemental funding bill passed by both the Senate and the House provides $75 million to the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and $50 million to the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The President is expected to sign the bill. The legislation also extends forgivable Small Business Administration (SBA) loans to nonprofit organizations-including museums, historic sites, independent libraries, and scholarly societies-with fewer than 500 employees to cover operational expenses. Thank you to all who contacted their representatives and made their voices heard!
