Feds Spend $300,000 for ‘Dialogues About Water’
The National Endowment for the Humanities’ list of taxpayer-funded projects includes $300,000 for conversations about water, $75,000 for a database of podcasts, and $30,000 for oral histories of lesbian and gay Idahoans.
The NEH released its list of its first projects under the Trump administration this week. Jon Peede, the acting chairman of the NEH and Trump appointee, has discretion for signing off on every grant award.
A source with extensive knowledge of the cultural agencies told the Washington Free Beacon, “There is no difference between the millions of dollars of grants awarded by the Trump and Obama NEH, this in spite of the president’s request to defund it.”
