CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Wyoming Humanities has received almost $600,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Wyoming Humanities Grant funding was made possible by the American Rescue Plan.

Most of the grant funds are for cultural non-profit organizations to help them recover from the effects of the pandemic.

The grants have previously gone out to libraries, historical societies, and museums.

Projects like public programming, publications, preservation projects, and digital media have received funds.

The Wyoming Crossroads is another grant set to help address Wyoming’s identity, community, connection to the land and change.

“If they can develop programs that will help engage their local audiences to create an environment of new thinking, big ideas, creativity. Then those are teh types of organizations we’re very interested in helping, " said Shawn Reese, Executive Director, Wyoming Humanities.

Organizations are encouraged to apply. The grant money must be distributed fully by the end of the year.
