Historic Level of Funding Secured for Ohio’s Arts and Culture
We are so thrilled to report that Governor Mike DeWine has signed the two-year state operating budget for FY 2020-2021 which includes a $5 million increase over the $29.5 million allocated for arts and culture in FY 2018-2019. The final state budget appropriation for the Ohio Arts Council now totals $34.5 million, a historic high level of arts funding in our state! We’re proud of the work we have done to secure this historic level of funding, and we couldn’t have done it without your help. Arts advocacy works, and this is proof that speaking up and making your voice heard and participating in the process has a major impact. Now is the time to celebrate and give our thanks to every advocate and policymaker who made this major victory possible!
