Applications are now being accepted for the Wyoming County Rural Arts Initiative’s Microenterprise Program that will offer grant funding uniquely tailored to assisting artists and artisans in establishing and enhancing businesses involved in any of the visual or performing arts. Administered by the Wyoming County Business Assistance Corporation with support from the Arts Council for Wyoming County and the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism, the program is open to individuals who will work in Wyoming County, rely on their artistic creations to produce income, and operate as a business in any form. Both new and existing businesses are eligible.

Funding for the program, which was provided to Wyoming County as a grant from the New York State Office of Community Renewal, will be available to subsidize the cost of studio or maker space, rent for gallery space and other exhibition venues, art supplies and equipment, access to e-commerce opportunities, and other operating costs typically incurred in the creation of art for the commercial market.

Application forms can be downloaded at or requested by e-mail from Chris Snyder at [email protected]. Submissions for the initial funding round are due by June 21st.
