To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
I am seeking the grant applications that were submitted for the Military Heroes Initiative that were awarded in 2010, sponsored by the US Election Assistance Commission (EAC).

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
