From the National Humanities Alliance (NHA):
Yesterday, the Biden administration released its FY 23 budget request. Several of our biggest priorities, including the National Endowment for the Humanities, Institute of Museum and Library Services, and National Archives and Records Administration received proposed increases for FY 23. Congress will now begin its appropriations process, ultimately drafting and passing bills that will fund the government in FY 23.
The administration proposed $200.65 million for the NEH, an increase of $20.65 million over FY 22, and $276.8 million for IMLS, an increase of $8.8 million over FY 22.
The administration proposed a $38 million increase for NARA, putting the total request at $426 million.
Unfortunately, the administration proposed a small decrease in funding for the Department of Education’s international education programs, including a $2.5 million decrease for Title VI and a $1 million decrease for Fulbright-Hays. Given that Congress just approved an increase for these programs two weeks ago, we are hopeful that it will again support an increase despite the administration’s proposal.
