All grant applications and final reports can be accessed through the Arts Council’s online grant system, Foundant.

All applicants will need to register as new Users in the new system. Watch this video tutorial for help creating an account and getting started in the system.

written tutorial on the account creation and application process is also available.

Starting in April 2022, organizations receiving federal funds from the Wyoming Arts Council are required to have a Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) from SAM.gov. This has replaced the DUNS number previously used. A UEI does not require full registration in SAM.gov, but it does require having a user account and following a few steps. Getting a UEI is free. Avoid any website that charges a fee. You can learn more from this video. Organizations can submit an application if the UEI has not been assigned, however, the Arts Council cannot disburse any funds without an active UEI. Please contact Cashmere Balland at cashmere.balland@wyo.gov if you have any questions.
