1Is there an overview of the types of allocations available as well as any restrictions those allocations have?
2Is there a example or demonstration of how to get an allocation that I could follow?There is a Cornell Virtual Workshop (CVW) on getting a Research Allocation for Jetstream here:
3How do I let other XSEDE accounts use my allocation?

To add users to, or remove them from, an active Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) allocation, the principal investigator, co-principal investigator, or allocation manager can follow the instructions here:

Please note that it can take up to four hours for users added to an allocation to become active. 

4How often can I get a startup allocation?Applications for startup allocations will only be accepted once. After the startup runs out it is best to apply for a research allocation.

I'm running out of Service Units (SUs) or storage.

How do I request more?

If you already have an XSEDE allocation and need to request additional service units (SUs), the PI, co-PI, or delegate may submit a request via the XSEDE User Portal. For instructions on how to submit the request, see Requesting additional SUs or storage for Jetstream -- Supplemental Allocations

I am at or exceeding the quota limits for my allocation.

How do I request additional resources such as CPUs and memory?

Additional CPUs and memory may be requested via Atmosphere.  See How to request additional resources on Jetstream.
