Non-profit organizations still can apply for thousands of dollars in Wyoming Humanities’ ARP grants

Libraries and museums are eligible for funds

Wyoming’s humanities-based non-profit organizations can still apply for general operating funds through Wyoming Humanities American Rescue Plan grant.

These organizations include libraries, museums, and several others.

“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 can be used for general operating support, which can include 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.
