Wyoming Arts Council

WAC makes changes in grant programs

Just in time for the new fiscal year, the Wyoming Arts Council has announced an increase in funding for most of its Ongoing Grants.

These grants are for arts projects or events taking place between July 1, 2008 and June 30, 2009. Applicants may receive funding from each WAC grant category once per year (July 1-June 30).

The WAC Board recently approved an increase in funding limits for these Ongoing Grant programs:

  • Arts Access project grants increase from $1,000 to $1,500
  • Arts Across Wyoming project grants increase from $500 to $600
  • Folk Arts project grants increase from $1,000 to $1,500
  • Folk Arts festival grants increase from $2,000 to $2,500
  • Open Door project grants increase from $750 to $1,000
  • Technology in the Arts project grants increase from $2,500 to $3,000
  • Arts Access festival grants have been added, with funding to $2,500

Before now, each of these Ongoing Grants required a one-to-one cash match to be eligible for the above listed grants. While the one-to-one cash match is still preferred, the WAC Board specified that 50 percent of the match can now be through in-kind donations, either merchandise or time. This change applies to all Ongoing Grant programs listed above except Technology in the Arts.

Applications in the Ongoing Grant categories will be accepted online only, unless special arrangements are made.
