Wyoming Arts Council

Grants

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 a new User in the new system. The interface is more user friendly and simpler to navigate for applicants. Watch this video tutorial for help creating an account and getting started in the system. A written tutorial of the account creation and application process is also available.

NEW this year! Starting in April 2022, organizations receiving federal funds from the Wyoming Arts Council will need a Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) from SAM.gov. This is replacing 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. You can still submit an application if you have not currently been assigned a UEI, however the Art’s Council cannot disburse any funds without the UEI. Please contact Cashmere Balland at cashmere.balland@wyo.gov if you have any questions.
