Cuts to the NEA mean cuts to NJ

Wednesday morning an amendment to cut the NEA by an additional $20.5 million offered by Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI) passed in Congress.  This is in addition to the $22.5 million cut already included in the underlying legislation.  These funding reductions will mean:
  • A decrease in NEA grants to New Jersey of $440,340
  • A $43 million cut to the NEA for FY2011

Take action by sending a message to your Members calling on them to reject these cuts to the NEA. 

We will have more information as this situation progresses, so please visit us on Facebook for up-to-date information as it is received.
