  • Check all the boxes on the application form that describe your project
  • If you check “other”on the application, please remember to include an explanation
  • On the checklist, check all the boxes for the required materials and include them in your application 
  • If an LPC staffer requests additional materials, try to submit them within three working days
  • Submit additional materials by e-mail, as .JPEG or .PDF files
