Urge Congress to Increase Public Media Funding


Congress is considering its Fiscal Year 2023 appropriations bills. Email your lawmakers to urge them to increase federal funding for public media.

Through our network’s advocacy, we’ve been able to start to reverse the effects of ten years of frozen federal funding and financial losses due to the pandemic. We must keep this momentum going to continue to improve the financial health of local public media stations and their public services that Americans depend on.

Increased federal support will allow public media stations to fill critical local journalism gaps, help bridge the digital divide in education, expand lifesaving emergency alerts, support jobseekers and contribute to cultural preservation and discovery.
