KS Arts Agency Again Eligible for Federal Matching Funds

(Photo by Stephen Koranda)The National Endowment for the Arts has made a preliminary decision saying Kansas is once again eligible to receive federal matching funds for arts programs. That decision was revealed during a meeting of the state’s arts agency today (FRI). When Governor Sam Brownback vetoed state arts funding in 2011, Kansas lost federal matching dollars. With some arts funding restored, the NEA says Kansas could be eligible for up to $560,000 in matching funds this fiscal year. Peter Jasso, director of the Creative Arts Industries Commission, calls the decision great news.

Members of the commission will now need to decide how much funding to provide in grants to arts programs to access the matching funds.
