Grant funding of up to $1,200 is available to libraries for the Latino Poetry Project. Wyoming Humanities is now offering to collaborate with and support any of the state’s libraries that would like to apply for this opportunity. These grants from the nonprofit Library of America are available to libraries and other public institutions for programs exploring Latino poetry and its ongoing relevance to American national life. Grants may be used for honoraria for local poets and scholars, travel expenses, actor/performer fees, publicity and promotion, refreshments, or other costs associated with programs.
Wyoming Humanities may be able to offer additional programming funding, scholar assistance, and marketing. Depending on the event, they may also be able to help with livestreaming. If any library in Wyoming is interested in a collaboration, or if they have questions, contact Lucas Fralick at email@example.com.
The deadline to apply for grants from the Latino Poetry Project is January 5, 2024. Learn more and apply. For more information on Wyoming Humanities, including program and grant opportunities, visit thinkwy.org.
