Cost of House Bill H.R. 1473
Of Note: The Kennedy Center itself acknowledges that it sits at a unique intersection of private and public interests:
"As the nation's living memorial to President Kennedy, the Center receives federal funding each year to pay for maintenance and operation of the building, a federal facility. However, the Center's artistic programs and education initiatives are paid for almost entirely through ticket sales and gifts from individuals, corporations, and private foundations."
