NEA Again Says KS Not Eligible for Federal Arts Funding

The National Endowment for the Arts has again refused to send Kansas federal matching funds for arts programs. After the state cut funding for the arts, the NEA said Kansas was no longer eligible for matching money, but they encouraged the state to reapply. Members of the Kansas Arts Commission had been preparing an application to submit before the end of the month. At a meeting today (WED), Commissioner Sandra Hartley, of Paola, said the NEA could have told them earlier.

Governor Sam Brownback vetoed state funding for the Arts Commission earlier this year. He wants private donations, not tax dollars, to support the arts in Kansas.
