The Wyoming Arts Council launched its Grants Online (GO!) grants system for FY 17 grants on 2/1/16 for projects taking place 7/1/16 – 6/30/17. Information from the FY 16 grants system was not carried forward to the new FY 17 grants system, so all organizations and individual artists need to Sign Up as a new User the new GO! grants system.
Click here to go to the GO! Welcome Page that has directions on how to Sign Up as a New User to enable you to start the application process for a FY 17 grant. Before you Sign Up as a new User, we recommend that you click on the HELP link in the upper left corner of the Welcome Page to learn more about the new e-grant system, and how to submit an application. You can also click here to go to the HELP link.
If your organization does not meet Wyoming Arts Council eligibility requirements, and you are going to use a Fiscal Sponsor, you should NOT list anything about the Fiscal Sponsor on your Applicant Organization page when you Sign Up as a new User. The only place Fiscal Sponsor information should appear is in the application on the Fiscal Sponsor page that appears in the application itself. You will also upload the Fiscal sponsor documentation to the Support Material page.
