The 100 Memorials / 100 Cities project encompasses the processes of soliciting involvement, support and education for the applicants, the grant application process itself, selection and grant awards, and importantly, the support, recognition, celebration and promotion of the grantee projects as we reach the Centennial of Armistice Day in 2018.
Below is a diagram of the sequence flow for these elements. Note these are the same steps for each round of the matching grant challenge and that Round #2 will follow the same steps 1-6 as Round #1 already has.
