The National Association for Music Education (NAfME), in collaboration with the NAMM Foundation, the Educational Theatre Association (edTA), the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO), and the National Art Education Association (NAEA), conducted an informal survey to collect data about the use of federal funds to support music and the arts (dance, theatre, and visual arts) during the 2021–22 school year. Responses were received from 47 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico between October 28 and December 9, 2022. The majority of the 343 individuals who filled out the survey were classroom teachers and district arts supervisors.
