The Arrowhead Regional Arts Council has made changes to its deadlines and criteria and has added a grant category, according to a news release from the nonprofit organization.

ARAC has shortened the span between application deadlines and response time. On the horizon, grants in three categories: Art Project, Rural and Community Art Project and Arts Learning programs. The deadline is 4:30 p.m. July 27.

The organization has added 33 percent more funding to its operating support program.

There is also a new Artist Access Grant for people who have never gotten an ARAC grant. It’s for a well-planned project that will help the artist grow or take advantage of an opportunity.
