Community & Business Development Grant Program
Using funds generated from the Buffalo Roam Art Project, WYED has launched a Community & Business Development Grant Program. On an open cycle basis, WYED is accepting applications to provide
funding assistance to projects within the Greater Yellowstone region. The purpose of the grant program is to provide funding for projects that will enhance and improve the economy, culture, and livelihood of residents
living in and around the Town of West Yellowstone.
The minimum grant size is $1,000 and the normal maximum size is $2,500. However, grants over $2,500 may be considered on a case by case basis. The grants are for any organization or business developing project(s)
in or near the Town of West Yellowstone. Applicants must provide hard match cash funds on a 1:1 ratio ($1 in grant funds must be matched by $1 in organization funds) in addition to providing in-kind goods and services
from the organization and its partners as part of the match.
WYED encourages all applicants to develop projects with at least one partner who will share the costs and responsibilities of the project. The project partners can be private businesses,
corporations, state or federal organizations, private foundations, or private families and individuals.
To apply for a grant, download this application form and follow the instructions on completing it and sending it in.
