How to Apply

Arrowhead Regional Arts Council has moved to an online granting system. All applications going forward must be submitted through the ARAC Grant Portal. Please refer to the tips below to help you navigate the new system.

Please Note: Links for each grant program application will only become available 6 weeks prior to the grant deadline (with the exception of Quick Start grants).

ARAC Grant Portal

Getting Started:
On your first visit to the ARAC Grant Portal, you will need to create a new account with a username and password. Please note that if you are applying as an organization, your organization can only have one username and password for the online system. Please be sure to keep this information as you will need it again to access the Portal for grant requirements and future requests.

Returning to an Application:
Your application does not need to be completed in one session and can be returned to and edited until you formally submit the application. Please be sure to save your application often while working on it and before you exit the system. To return to your application, you can access the ARAC Grant Portal through the Manage My Grant page. There you may logon using the email address and password you created the first time you entered.

Uploading Information:
There are fields in the application that will require you to upload information (documents, media, etc.). Please note that your information may not be completely uploaded until you click “Save”. Be sure to save your application often so as not to lose any progress or information.

Submitting an Application:
Once you have completed and reviewed your application, you may submit the application for funding consideration. Once an application has been submitted you will be able to view the application, but not edit or make changes to it.
