Deadline extension announced for Art Works for Wyoming grants

It has come to the Wyoming Arts Council's attention that the e-mails informing grantees of the second deadline for Art Works for Wyoming grants may not have been sent due to a glitch in the mailing system. Because of that, WAC has decided to extend the deadline to accept Art Works for Wyoming (AWW) grants to December 31, 2009.

Only organizations which have applied for grants from WAC in the last four years and successfully completed them are eligible to to apply. For current guidelines and to apply, go to:

These grants may be used only to retain jobs which would otherwise be eliminated, or to retain/extend contracts which would be cut short or canceled. Guidelines are also attached for your convenience. Applications will be accepted online only by 11:59 pm December 31, 2009.

Art Works for Wyoming grants are funded by the National Endowment for the Arts using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act monies.

WAC would appreciate, if possible, for grants to come in sooner. Any grant received prior to the deadline will be considered a draft and returned with comments.
