Obama to Spend $200k on 'Cultural Programming' in China

Obama to Spend $200k on 'Cultural Programming' in China

President Barack Obama’s administration announced on Thursday that it wants to spend about $200,000 of U.S. taxpayers’ money conducting “Cultural Programming” inside the “People’s Republic of China.”

The money, split up among an expected 30 total awards, range in dollar amount between $5,000 and $50,000. The money would be spent “conducting cultural exchange programs that will provide Chinese audiences with the opportunity to experience U.S. culture and the arts.”

Americans aren’t the only ones eligible for this taxpayer money, either. The Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Embassy in Beijing is inviting “U.S. individuals, educational institutions, and not-for-profit organizations subject to 501 (c) (3) of the tax code, as well as Chinese organizations legally established in China” to apply for the cash. 

The eligible applicants section of the Grants.gov announcement says that “Public and State controlled institutions of higher education” in China are allowed to apply for the U.S. taxpayers’ money.

This grant announcement comes just weeks after President Barack Obama reportedly told House Speaker John Boehner that “we don’t have a spending problem.”
