ACTION: 1% for Arts + Culture from American Rescue Plan
Last week, the Arts Council sent this letter to the leaders of our cities and towns to commit 1% of their American Rescue Plan grant into arts and culture. The federal guidelines specifically prioritize our industry for support, but we also highlight the power of artists and creative organizations to help our region recover and revive.
But now they must hear directly from you!
- Find out how much support your city or town will receive from the American Rescue Plan
- Contact the head of your city or town and ask them to invest 1% of this grant into arts and culture
- Share the graphic below on social media to spread the word in your networks
- Always include a personal story about why this investment is important to you or your community
Note: Our focus is on general funding, not the education support
