How to affiliate with an organization
Once you are logged into the system, you will need to affiliate with an organization. For example, if you will be submitting an application for a city or county, you will need to be affiliated with that city or county organization. You may also affiliate with multiple organizations. This applies for grant consultants and development districts who may apply for multiple organizations.
At the top of the 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.
To affiliate with an organization, click "Submit Affiliation Request" button in the second section of the home dashboard. A new page titled "Request Affiliation with an Organization" will pop up.
First, select the "Lookup" button to see if your organization is in the system. All of the TN cities and counties have been entered into the system. Select your organization and proceed to Step 4 and enter your information. Once complete, click "Submit".
If your organization is not listed, select "Register New Organization" in Step 2. Complete the information in the new page that pops up and click "Submit". After you are returned to the Affiliation page, start typing in your organization in Step 1 and select. Proceed to Step 4 and enter your information. Once complete, click "Submit".
