(NOTE: The applicant should be prepared to make a presentation on their project to the PNC Technical Review Committee proposal after submission, if requested). c.If approved, a PNC funding agreement will be mailed to the applicant. The applicant will be required to submit a signed agreement (along with the check for any “matching” cash funds) to the City of Pensacola.
