As you’ve likely seen, the proposed federal budget calls for the elimination of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). NEH and the Alabama Humanities Foundation play vital roles in American and Alabama culture and civic life by reaching into communities to support local cultural organizations, museums, and schools.
Last year, AHF — with funding from NEH — supported nearly 200 community-based programs reaching every county in our state. Programs including Prime Time Family Reading, Road Scholars Speakers Bureau, and Museum on Main Street reached over 130,000 Alabamians in local libraries, genealogical societies, and community centers.
