The new administration has brought with it a change in budget priorities. The President’s proposed budget for 2018 defunds the National Endowments for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Significant cuts are also being proposed to education and other important programs. Grantmakers in the Arts wants to make sure arts funders understand the current state of play, how and when these decisions will be made, and how you can impact them. GIA’s federal policy consultants, Penn Hill Group, will provide a briefing on these matters and take your questions during a webinar on June 7. Penn Hill Group has helped GIA with its federal policy work for several years and are experts on the federal budget and appropriations spending process
