Host sites are selected through two processes: Pre-Confirmed & Fellow-Led.

Pre-confirmed hosts are communities that have applied to be a host, developed a project scope, and confirmed preliminary funding and structure to host. LFMN then geo-targets our recruitment process to find Fellows to fill those placements. Fellow-Led placements are communities initiated by an applicant. LFMN works with the candidate and proposed host to develop a match and structure for hosting.
