The Arizona Commission on the Arts is pleased to report that the Governor’s proposed budget for FY2023 includes $2 million to fund grants in support of arts and culture programs across the state.

The board and staff of the Arts Commission are grateful to Governor Ducey for his support of the arts and those who contribute so much to the beauty, vitality, and identity of Arizona communities.

The Governor’s budget proposal is the first step in the budget-development process. Over the coming weeks, Arizona legislators will craft their proposals for the State’s FY2023 budget, and several legislative leaders have expressed interest in building on the Governor’s position that the arts are a worthy investment. As the process progresses, if the arts are part of your vision for Arizona’s future, please let your legislators know.

In the meantime, please join us in thanking Governor Ducey and all those who work to support, create, teach, and advance the arts in Arizona.
