Funding for arts agencies in Nevada to reach $1.3 million in FY2020


Legislative appropriations for Nevada arts agencies are projected to reach $1.3 million for fiscal year 2020, which equates to 44 cents per capita in the state, according to a report from the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies (NASAA).

The state’s per-capita funding for arts agencies is the ninth lowest among all 50 states and the District of Columbia, the analysis said.

In fiscal year 2019, Nevada allocated $2 million to arts agencies in the state. The change in funding between fiscal years 2019 and 2020 was minus 33.8 percent.

The NASAA identifies a number of ways state governments provide revenue to arts agencies, but the primary source of funds is a state’s general fund, according to the report. Other sources of arts agency funding include special taxes or fees, lottery and gaming taxes, specialty arts license plates and income tax checkoffs.

The assembly surveys state arts agencies biannually to update its database on appropriations and revenues going to arts programs.
