Next year’s NY state budget will be voted on in the coming weeks, so now is the time to make our voices heard! The Governor’s Executive Budget included only $40M for the New York State Council on the Arts, and no funding for capital projects for cultural organizations. This would be a big step down from last year’s funding. Senator José Serrano and Assembly Member Daniel O’Donnell released letters calling for substantial increases in funding both to NYSCA and for capital projects for arts organizations.
Please join us in asking NY State Assembly and Senate in supporting Assembly Member O'Donnell and Senator Serano's calls for robust funding for arts across NY State. Use our template here to generate a letter to your State Assembly Member and Senator:
