Military Heroes Initiative Grant

Military Heroes Initiative

EAC and the Department of Defense Federal Voting Assistance Program worked together on this initiative to research accommodations and assistance needed for recently injured military personnel to participate in federal elections. Nonprofit organizations and institutions of higher education were eligible to compete for the $500,000 grant. EAC awarded the grant to the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) in September 2010.
