RILA and the Government Shutdown




Due to the expiration of the stopgap funding and subsequent partial shutdown of the government, operations at the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and also the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) are suspended until FY2019 funding for the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies passes.

RILA's programs and activities in 2019 funded by the NEH and NEA will therefore be delayed until funding is restored, and that means new staff members and teaching artists will be on furlough until it is resolved. Nevertheless, we stand strong and support Rhode Island's Congressional delegation and others in Washington in fighting the White House's demands to build a wall. #NoWall #StandUpAgainstTheWall #Resistance
