PCA to be eliminated in 2010 budget - Help Needed

The state legislature is considering eliminating the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts in the 2010 budget. Millions of dollars in funding would be cut to programs throughout the state, including dozens of arts programs and institutions in the Lehigh Valley.

The PCA provides grants for arts projects, fellowships to artists and funds to great organizations, such as Godfrey Daniels in Bethlehem, Allentown Art Museum and many, many more.

Please contact your legislator. This is not a partisan issue, both the House Republicans and Democrats are proposing elimination of the PCA.
