Can more than one person in my organization register? 
More than one person can register per organization, but each application must be associated with a "lead" applicant. Once registered, that "lead" applicant can provide others with access to the application through the system.
What happens once I register?
Once you register and confirm your email address, you will see a home page. Before you can access the application form, you will be required to complete an organization eligibility survey. This will determine if your organization is eligible for the Program. You will also be required to answer some questions to determine if your project is eligible for the Program.
