Urge Congress to Increase Public Media Funding


Congress is finalizing the Fiscal Year 2022 funding bills. Call your lawmakers TODAY to urge them to increase federal funding for public media.

Every American deserves access to strong local public media stations and the unparalleled programming and community-based services they provide.

A decade of frozen federal funding and steep declines in non-federal revenue due to the pandemic jeopardize the future of public media stations and the delivery of services we depend on – the news, emergency communications, proven-effective children’s educational content, and more.

Increasing public media funding will strengthen our local news, safety, children’s academic outcomes, and civil discourse.
