What are you looking for when you ask for a budget figure?
Atlas Network appreciates the honest and accurate reporting of your organization’s actual operating budget. This effectively means the revenue your organization brought in for a given year. This information is important because it impacts our understanding of your organization's operating capacity and how we might play a part in helping your organization grow. Budgetary information is handled in a discrete and private manner to honor the privacy of this information.

Can multiple members of my team work on a single application?
Yes! The owner of an application can easily add "members" to an application, allowing them to edit or just read the application materials. On the main submission page, click on "Add Member" on the bottom right-hand side of the screen, which will open a new screen where you complete the information for the person you wish to add. You can provide two different access levels: "Full Control" and "Read Only."

What if my organization is a partner but I can't find it on the directory?
