We represent a groupof 113 chambers of commerce from 46 states collectively working with over 33 millionemployers, employees, and businesses of all sizes and industries to respond to our national publichealth and economic crisis.The 2020 CARES Act and the new American Rescue Plan Act provided much-needed relief to manyof our members, however, there are critical gaps in the aid that fail to meet the needs of the creativeeconomy and cultural infrastructure. A report from the Brookings Institution1 found that thecountry’s 670,000 creative economy businesses (which generate 919.7 billion each year towards theGDP)2 have collectively lost at least 150 billion, and that over half of all workers in the creativesector remain unemployed.Johns Hopkins University and the international Organisation for Economic Cooperation andDevelopment warn3 that the creative sector is among the most impacted industries in the country—with damaging ripple effects to restaurants, tourism, travel, and local businesses. Bureau ofEconomic Analysis data shows that the sector contracted by 59% between the end of 2019 and mid2020—twice the rate of other highly impacted industries—and is rebounding at a slower rate.4We request that the U.S. Congress work swiftly to enact the following provisions within theinfrastructure and recovery package known as the American Jobs Plan. These proposals echothe Put Creative Workers to Work policy platform endorsed by over 2,300 creative businesses andcreative workers in all 50 states.5 Allocate 14 billion to incentivize local, state, and tribal businesses and governments to putcreative workers to work and activate cultural infrastructure, including hiring or tax credits toincentivize businesses and local and state agencies to accelerate hiring, re-hiring, or retentionof creative workers; funds to incentivize financial institutions to invest in small creativebusinesses and creative entrepreneurs; grants to cover restart costs for small creative1Source: Brookings Institution, Lost Art, 2020Source: U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, 20203Source: Johns Hopkins University and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development4Source: U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, 20205Visit http://www.creativeworkers.net2page 1 of 6

businesses and provide capital for the creation of new creative product to be sold; andsupport for local and state creative workforce programs. Allocate 3 billion to spark an American cultural renaissance via the NEA, NEH, IMLS, andother federal agencies, including through creative jobs, fellowships, residencies, andcommissions designed to drive local economic growth and community cohesion, producefree entertainment to encourage local spending, and incentivize local and state workforcedevelopment and infrastructure programs. Allocate 1 billion in arts and creativity-based education for recovery via the Department ofEducation, including a bridge program to incentivize retention of arts educators withineducation infrastructure. Direct the Federal Reserve to broaden their nonprofit lending facility under the Main StreetLending Program to specifically benefit mid-size nonprofits to those with more than 500employees, and a loan forgiveness option.As we face the road to economic recovery, we must prioritize creative infrastructure and the sector ofcreative and cultural institutions, particularly because they will help drive the recovery of local smallbusinesses and economies of all types. With key investments and funding, cultural institutions canpush the recovery forward across the country.Sincerely,AlabamaMobile Area Chamber, Mobile, ALArkansasGreater Bentonville Area Chamber of Commerce, Bentonville, ARArizonaVisit Tucson, Tucson, AZCaliforniaLos Angeles Area Chamber, Los Angeles, CAOrange County Business Council, Orange County, CAPacific Grove Chamber of Commerce, Pacific Grove, CASanta Monica Chamber of Commerce, Santa Monica, CAColoradoAurora Chamber of Commerce, Aurora, COBoulder Chamber of Commerce, Boulder, COCrested Butte Chamber of Commerce, Crested Butte, COConnecticutCentral Connecticut Chambers of Commerce, Bristol, CTGreater Norwalk Chamber of Commerce, Norwalk, CTMetroHartford Alliance, Hartford, CTpage 2 of 6
