STEP 1: Determine if project meets eligibility criteria, including mission alignment, confirmed funding and legal framework.

STEP 2: Begin the process by completing the Partner With Us form on our website.

STEP 3: Have an initial call with Tides staff to discuss your mission, program activities, needs, and timeline.

STEP 4: Tides staff invite those eligible candidates who fit our current criteria to submit an application and select which cohort to be part of. Application is by invitation only and cohorts are onboarded in three periods annually — spring, summer, and fall.

STEP 5: If application is approved by Tides staff, project is onboarded and is active once initial funding is received by Tides.
