Federal arts funding ain’t dead yet.

The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC) just received a $20,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), supplemented with a matched donation from the Lynne and Harold Honickman Foundation.

The new funds will support PPAC’s Artist Residency Program. Historically, the program has supported the work of two artists. The grants from NEA and the Honickman Foundation will allow PPAC to support a third artist in 2017.

The $20,000 federal grant, part of an NEA initiative to support “diverse art” that engages communities, is a sliver of the endowment’s slated $30 million in grants for 2017, according to a release.

NEA funding might not be so generous in the near future. According to a report from The Hill, President Donald Trump plans on eliminating the endowment altogether.
