Springboard highlights NEA’s rural impact

June 02, 2017

With the Trump administration proposing to eliminate funding for the National Endowment of the Arts, Springboard for the Arts wanted to help shape the national debate by highlighting how a $25,000 NEA grant helped a struggling rural Minnesota community leverage 10 times that amount in new private investments ($1.2 million) for an innovative artist-led economic development program.

PKPR placed in depth stories on Springboard’s powerful NEA case study in outlets including ThinkProgress, Vice’s Creators, and The Art Newspaper.
