Save State Arts Funding NOW!

 Both the Decentralized Arts Funding and the Statewide Arts Grants programs have been targeted with crippling cuts. In the current bill, all that’s remaining for DAF is $1 million and only $959,000 remains for SAG, which represents a 60% reduction in funding levels from Fiscal Year 2009. Louisiana Citizens for the Arts is requesting that the Legislature restore both grant programs to the 2009 funding level by adding $1 million to each program in the Division of the Arts budget. It is extremely important that you contact the members of Senate Fiance to show your support. The time is NOW to contact members of the Senate Finance Committee and ask them to vote for an increase in arts funding.  You need to do it NOW, because this is our LAST chance to have funding restored.Contact Your Legislators TODAY To Save The Arts In Louisiana:
