Just noticed that the budget allocation is actually 3.6%, not 10%, since the submission is $9,000 out of a $250,000 budget for this strategy.

Ah yes, I was a bit confused at what that meant.

I am unable to edit it now, though. But if you could edit it to 3.6% I would appreciate it.

Done. Should be correct now
