Question: Are Fees required for all submissions?

AnswerNo. Fees are not required for all submissions.

Question: I submitted my project but never received an email with my project number (example: 2021PR00123), what do I do?

Answer: Make sure you fully submitted your project. You may have received a token (example: MW83FHWE1KOI), this is not a project number. If you only have a token number then log in to HICRIS and search the “My Projects” queue and find the project using your token. Scroll through the project to make sure you have submitted everything and attempt to finish submitting the project. The Intake system will process your project and you will receive an email with your project number.
