Biden Administration Revives the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, Led by IMLS, NEA, and NEH

IMLS announced “that under a new Executive Order issued by President Biden on Sept. 30, 2022, it will provide funding and administrative support for the re-establishment of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH). The order was part of a proclamation designating October 2022 as National Arts and Humanities Month.”

PCAH was established in 1982 by President Ronald Reagan. IMLS notes, “The IMLS Director and the Chairs of the National Endowment for the Arts [NEA], and the National Endowment for the Humanities [NEH] will lead the committee of up to twenty-five non-federal leaders in the arts, humanities, and museum and library services to advise the President on policy objectives, philanthropic and private sector engagement, and other efforts to enhance federal support for the arts, the humanities, and museum and library services.” In addition, “In the spirit of the order, IMLS will be developing partnerships with other federal agencies to advance opportunities to utilize the arts, humanities, museums, and libraries to connect communities across the country with important information and resources.”
