Fact of the Week

Fact of the Week #131: The arts offer a net gain for government. State arts agencies and the NEA operate with modest financial resources, lean staffs and as little red tape as possible. They also are highly responsive to citizens, involving the public in agency oversight, planning and funding decision. In return, the arts yield $22.3 billion in revenue to federal, state, county and municipal governments. Federal arts funding leverages $9 in matching funds for every $1 granted. nasaa-arts.org
