Does "corporate sponsorship in the national interest" imply "the participation of the private sector (corporate activities) in national arenas"?

Context:
The Depression and the resulting federal sponsorship of public art had stimulated the notion that artists could serve in times of crisis. The Second World War fused the ideas of artists’ public service and federal (military) backing with corporate sponsorship in the national interest (Art and War by Laura Brandon).

    I don’t think those two concepts quite belong together in that sentence.

    The Second World War fused (= combined)
    (a) the ideas of artists’ public service and federal (military) backing (see previous sentence)
    with
    (b) corporate sponsorship
    [and this was done…] in the national interest

    And, does "federal (military) backing" mean "military backing of government for these artist-soldiers"?
