    There seems to be an issue with the form. The form reports an invalid entry format for the question on the address of the organization every time I enter the address. Is there a specific format that is recognized? How can I resolve this issue?

    There appears to be an error message stating “invalid format” when I try to enter the street address of the Organization. Without this completed field, my application form cannot be submitted. What format do you recommend that I use? How can I solve this issue?
