Representatives Teresa Leger Fernández (D-NM) and Jay Obernolte (R-CA) introduced The Creative Economy Revitalization Act (HR 5019) (CERA) on August 13, 2021.
CERA calls for $300 million for a new grant program to support the arts, in collaboration with the NEA. The grants will go to local, state, and tribal agencies, workforce investment boards, and public or private nonprofit entities that can hire local creative workers and produce publicly-available creative projects. These projects could include public artworks, festivals, performances, written works, anthologies and narrative collections from first responders and historically marginalized communities, and arts education work.
