The WAC’s largest grant category supports the production of arts programs, projects and events in local communities across the state.. GTO grants promote artistic excellence and a breadth of artistic experience for audiences of all ages and abilities.
Projects encompass all the arts including performing, visual, literary, media, folk, or multi-disciplinary arts. Funded projects are community based and do not have arts education as the primary focus. Appropriate activities can range from a single performance, reading or exhibit to a yearlong project, series of projects, multiple unrelated projects, a season of arts programs and activities, and single or multi-day festivals. Do not submit GTO applications for operating support funds. GTO applications should be specific to the proposed projects and should not include other basic organizational expenditures.
Note: Wyoming non-profit arts organizations are limited to applying for the Operating Support OR Grants to Organizations program each fiscal year. Organizations may apply for both, but will only be awarded the higher of the two.
