Urge your members of Congress to support federal funding for music education by advocating for full funding of the Student Support and Academic Enrichment grant program under Title IV-A of the Every Student Succeeds Act. The Title IV-A block grant provides flexible funding for states and districts to support safe and healthy students, the effective use of technology in education, and well-rounded education programs, and it specifically mentions music as an allowable use of funding. Because of the grant’s significant potential to improve student success and access to a variety of music education opportunities, Title IV-A is among NAfME’s top priorities in the annual federal budget process.
Share this campaign with other music education advocates today.
