Reminders regarding attachments for submissions:

  • Attachments must have unique filename. For example, applications that include subawards  must use different names for the Brown budget justification and the subaward budget justification.  They can’t both be named “Budget_Justification”.
  • Please limit file names to 50 or fewer characters.
  • Please use only the following UTF-8 characters when naming your attachments: A-Z, a-z, 0-9, underscore, hyphen, space, period, parenthesis, curly braces, square brackets, ampersand, tilde, exclamation point, comma, semi colon, apostrophe, at sign, number sign, dollar sign, percent sign, plus sign, and equal sign.
  • Attachments should be flat ( not live) pdf files unless otherwise noted in the FOA

Attachments that do not follow these rules may cause the entire application to be rejected or cause issues during processing.
