Wyoming Business Council accepting applications for community facility rehabilitation grants

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Wyoming Business Council has opened applications for the Community Facility Rehabilitation Grant Program, a sub-component of the Community Facilities Program that was appropriated by the Wyoming Legislature during the 2024 General Session.

This program has an allocation of $2,800,000 to be expended as a grant or grants for cities and towns to complete the preservation of former school facilities as community centers, provided that the expenditure is for facilities that are included on the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places or that are marked as a National Historic Landmark in a community with a population of less than 1,500.

Furthermore, applicants must be a city or town that has received funding or technical assistance from the WBC for the preservation of a former school facility as a community center before March 22, 2024. Applicants must also be prepared to give a presentation to WBC staff as part of the application process.

Cities and towns can apply now online here. Applications will be accepted through June 15, 2024.
