Take Action for the NEH!

Humanities organizations and educators have an essential role to play in rebuilding the economy, revitalizing communities, and renewing our civic and democratic culture.

Urge Congress to increase funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) by $57.5 million for FY 2022 to help humanities educators and organizations serve the country at this crucial time. 

This increase is an important first step in rebuilding the NEH’s funding capacity—which is well-below previous levels—to ensure that the humanities sector is well poised to address today’s challenges.
