Wyoming’s humanities-based non-profit organizations — including libraries, museums, and more — can still apply for general operating funds through Wyoming Humanities American Rescue Plan grants. The next deadline to apply is October 15, 2021. Grants are also available for programming and pandemic recovery.
“I’ve heard from people asking whether they should apply or whether they fit the criteria,” said Chloe Flagg, the director of grants and programming with Wyoming Humanities. “The quick answer is often a resounding ‘yes’ – and if they have any questions, they should absolutely speak with us about these opportunities.”
Thousands of dollars are available for eligible organizations. Funds for general operating support can often be used for salaries, utilities, rent, and much more. This grant is made possible with ARP funding channeled through the National Endowment for the Humanities. This money will support nonprofit organizations as they prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from the coronavirus.
The application process has been streamlined and significantly simplified, with no letter of intent required. “The whole process may take just 30 minutes,” Flagg said.
