Despite being the least populated state in the country, Wyoming's cultural history is second to none, but sometimes bringing that history to life presents challenges that's where the Wyoming cultural trust fund comes in.
The idea for the fund originated in the late nineties when the state legislature appropriated fourteen point four million dollars to put into a trust.
But it wasn't until 2006 that the granting process actually began.
From local projects here in Cheyenne to a Basque festival in Buffalo, or the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center between Cody and Powell, the fund helps in making the states culture accessible to its people.
The true uniqueness of the fund is that it is not bound by the state's fiscal year and when it comes to supporting organizations, they help with staffing too.
The ultimate goal for everyone involved with the fund is to ensure that projects, no matter the type or size, touch Wyoming's culture in some way.
