With legislative changes ahead under a new US Presidential administration, American for the Arts Action Fund developed a pro-arts action list in a national petition.

While pointing out the important economic impact of the arts and culture sector in the US, the petition also includes the suggestion of a significant and needed increase to funding of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to $1.00 per capita. Currently, it is 46 cents per capita.

The NEA spent $147.9 million in 2016.

Among the many nations with much greater arts funding than the U.S., France upped cultural funding by 6.6% to a total of $3.2 billion for next year.
