Wyoming Humanities has announced the launch of the Wyoming Crossroads Fund. This initiative will harness the power and creativity of Wyoming’s cultural arts network to help the state address the social and economic challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic, combined with the ongoing dire downturn in Wyoming’s energy industry, is forcing the Equality State to rapidly adapt its economy. The organization also launches emergency grants for cultural organizations affected by the COVID-19.
The first grant line of the Wyoming Crossroads Fund will be the Wyoming Cultural CARES emergency grants:
