Statement of Support for the NEH, NEA, and other Agencies

As members of the Florida Digital Humanities Consortium (FLDH), we wish to acknowledge the importance of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the U.S. Institute for Peace, the Appalachian Regional Commission, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

These agencies and programs provide all Americans valuable access to the humanities, arts, and media. They provide funding for school trips to museums and theaters, teacher institutes and education, and archival preservation of diverse cultural histories, among many other initiatives. Equally as important, they provide funding to help develop research and data, to build resources and programs, and to support individuals and communities pursuing cultural and humanities questions, at both big and small levels. As Florida residents, we know how much our communities have benefited from these efforts.
