Protect WCTE from a 40% budget cut!
As you've already heard, public media funding was proposed for elimination in the President’s budget for next year.
While our lawmakers debate that budget, there is a more pressing concern:
In the next week or so, Congress will finalize federal funding levels for fiscal year (FY) 2017, the current fiscal year.
Now, public media funding, like all federally-supported programs, is being carefully considered. If these resources are cut, WCTE and our public media peers would be devastated — both stations and programs would be at risk.
At WCTE, we are determined to provide you and your family with the exceptional, award-winning, local and national programming and services you expect and deserve — no matter what challenges face us.
You can help guarantee that by taking action right now. Please, take a moment to ensure that WCTE and the public media you value survives and thrives.
Here's how you can help:

Your voice counts, so make it heard. Working together, we can show our lawmakers that public media funding is a small but smart investment (just $1.35 per person!) that pays huge dividends to Americans in education, civic engagement and public safety.
Please, join us today and champion the enduring value of American public media.
