put in = make an application as for a job or funding.
What does `funding' refer to here?
Please explain it.
Sometimes a charity or non-profit organization will request a large sum of money, or a grant, from a corporation. For example, the local public television station might request a certain amount of money from General Motors in order to produce a special about the automotive industry. The television station would compose an official written request for funding, and then sumbit it to the proper authorities at GM.
