Endowments Still in Jeopardy
Although Congress increased funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and The National Endowment for the Humanities in the budget that runs through September, 2017, that does not mean that Donald Trump's agenda of getting rid of those agencies has gone away. The issue will raise its head again when Congress begins to negotiate the budget for the coming federal fiscal period and the outcome for those agencies is still a big question. Trump put forward a budget for 2018 which seeks to eliminate the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities (NEA, NEH), the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and about a dozen other independent agencies. In light of the Congressional and public resistance to elimination of these agencies, continuing funding seems likely.
