How to Affiliate with an Organization

After creating a profile in the system, you will need to affiliate with an organization BEFORE opening an application. If you are submitting an application for a city or county, you will need to be affiliated with that city or county. You may affiliate with multiple organizations (this applies to grant consultants and development districts who may apply for multiple organizations). Please note that only the primary contact of an organization will have access to all applications within their organization. In order to have access to an application created by another user, you may need to ask the division to be added as an assigned contact. 

At the top of your Home dashboard (screenshot below), there is a message at the top "Note: Please be sure to submit a request to affiliate with a registered organization before you apply for any grant." This box will let you know which organization you are logged in as "Affiliated" with or "Not Affiliated". To switch to your organization of preference, simply click the "Switch Organization" button on the top right of the screen.
