On Tuesday, March 2, 2010, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will vote on a motion to restore funding for the Arts Internship Program. The motion is to restore funding for the program in the amount of $250,000, a 50% reduction from FY 2008-09. If restored, the funding would support 75 internships during the summer of 2010, down from 125 internships funded in the previous year.
