Funding for NEH is already at just 29 percent of its peak and 62 percent of its average.
After years of deep cuts, the Obama Administration has proposed restoring some of NEH’s capacity with a 12 percent increase in funding. Oppose the cuts and help restore NEH's critical support for the humanities.
In recent years, the Stowe Center has received support from the National Endowment for the Humanities for collections preservation (including the renovation of the Library/Archives vault) two national teacher institutes, and many public programs and projects via Connecticut Humanities.
How can you take action? The National Humanities Alliance has a page on their Online Action Center which will generate a message of support. Visit Oppose devastating cuts to the National Endowment for the Humanities! or see the embedded web page below to complete the form and email your Representative/Senator today! Be sure to mention the impact the Stowe Center and its programs have had on you and the community, and why funding of such institutions is critical for the preservation of history and inspiration of many generations of visitors.
