Advocacy

The American Alliance of Museums works to unite the country’s museums from art museums to zoos. The Alliance helps museums tell our story and promotes a deeper understanding of museums with policymakers, the press and the public.

FY 2015 Funding Legislation Finalized

Congress has passed legislation that will fund most of the federal government for Fiscal Year 2015, which runs through the end of September. With $1.1 trillion overall—almost identical to last year—the FY 2015 legislation did not present much opportunity for increases. In fact, some agencies will face reductions in funding. In this climate, many of the museum field’s priorities fared relatively well.
