The City's email server limits attachment size per email to 25MB. We recommend you submit your application via a dropbox link, especially if you include additional attachments.

 

5) Does a deferred developer's fee constitute an organizational "match"?

Yes, this resource is deferred to increase the immediate financial viability of the project, so it's a match.

The latter option is acceptable as long as the applicant ensures the same layout is used and nothing is omitted.
