The Arts and Economic Recovery Policy Recommendations Announced
Americans for the Arts today released its policy recommendations to President-elect Barack Obama and the U.S. Congress, as they begin consideration of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan. The nine recommendations detail how existing federal programs, as well as new proposals, can provide critical support to the country’s arts, as well as economic infrastructure. The policy recommendations are available here.
A comprehensive resource guide is also available for arts organizations. The website provides tools and research to assist groups in remaining fiscally healthy in this time of economic uncertainty.
