Nature: Arecibo telescope wins reprieve from US government (https://www.nature.com/news/arecibo-telescope-wins-reprieve-from-us-government-1.22994)


The US National Science Foundation (NSF), which funds about two-thirds of the observatory’s annual US$12-million budget, has decided to continue operating it in collaboration with as-yet-to-be-decided partners. Over the next five years the agency will reduce its annual contribution from $8.2 million to $2 million, with the rest coming from the unspecified partner institutions.

Maybe.
