The Wasatch County Arts Council exists to support and coordinate the efforts of organizations committed to Wasatch County as a premier destination for visual and performing arts. As part of this goal, we strive to support our local artists, performing groups, and individuals by offering yearly arts grants. These grants are designed to help the recipient excel beyond their own capacity. Funding for these grants comes from the generous support of the Wasatch County Council.
The purpose of these grants is to increase participation in the arts in Wasatch County by offering a source of funding to help promote, advertise, and develop arts organizations and events. The Wasatch County Arts Council has more funds this year to allocate with the goal to award as many worthy projects as funds allow. Grant funds are paid as a reimbursement for approved expenditures. Applying does not guarantee funding.
It is encouraged, but not required, that funds should be spent in the county, when possible. The grant funds can only be used for staging, venue, marketing, & operations. Funds may not be used for salaries or personal gains, debts, fundraising, travel or redistribution. Funds must be used within 1 year from the awarding date of March 15, 2023. Any questions regarding use of funds can be directed to Missy Maughan at [email protected]
You may download a hard copy of the grant application and submit it via email or in person.

Grant Reports –
Within 45 days of your project, a summary report is due to the arts council detailing the completion of your project or event. This report should be a clear explanation of items purchased, number of people attending the event, and receipts or invoices. Your project will not be reimbursed without this report and the proper receipts or invoices. Reports submitted after 45 days will only receive half of the project amount. After 60 days, the project will become ineligible for reimbursement.
Also, please include a “Thank You” letter in your report to the Wasatch County Council. The Council has been a tremendous support to the arts and we would like to show them what their investment into the arts has created. We will forward the letter on to the county council.
