Wyoming Humanities (WYH)
Grants ranging from $2,001 to $10,000 to Wyoming nonprofit organizations, government agencies, schools, libraries, and museums for humanities projects that benefit public audiences. A Letter of Intent must be submitted prior to applying. Projects must be focused on the humanities, built around a public event, and involve a humanities scholar.
Wyoming Humanities supports projects that match their vision of expanding the Wyoming narrative to promote engaged communities. The goal of Wyoming Humanities’ grants is to support public programs that use the humanities to explore the state’s histories, stories, issues, and connections between groups and communities. Expansion grants are intended to fund larger programs, both in terms of scope and impact.
GrantWatch ID#: 146943
$2,001 - $10,000
Projects must start at least 60 days after the due date.
Eligible applicants must be a state or federally recognized nonprofit group or state agency (library, school, college, museum), with a valid tax EIN and DUNs number to receive funds to sponsor the grant and manage the funds. Wyoming Humanities can only fund registered nonprofits.
Deadline is once per year: April 1, 2019.
Please submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) before applying. You should include a general description of the proposed project that emphasizes its humanities content, as well as its start date and the amount of funds you are requesting. Staff generally tries to respond to LOIs within two working days of submission, though it's best to give five working days.
Wyoming Humanities will give feedback on a grant draft, and staff is happy to work with you as you develop your idea into a project; however, they cannot guarantee first reads on drafts less than two week from the submittal date.
All Wyoming Humanities grant funds must be matched 1:1 with non-Federal dollars. This match can be both cash and in-kind (for example, the dollar value of facilities or time that people contribute to your project).
All grants must be submitted through the online portal. Applications must register for a user name and submit project organization information at the same time in order to access the system.
If you have a project in mind, get started as early as you can. Funding in the later portion of the Wyoming Humanities fiscal year (August 1 – Oct 31) is generally limited, and grants submitted during this time may not be considered or funded in time due to budget constraints.
