DHS Grants to Support Community-Led Counterterrorism Efforts

The Department of Homeland Security has awarded $10 million in total grants to 26 local law enforcement and community organizations that aim to help the government combat terrorism and radicalization.

DHS said Friday the Countering Violent Extremism program will fund community-led initiatives to identify and stop terrorist recruitment and extremist activities as well as deter individuals from engaging in criminal behavior or terrorist plotting.

The initiatives will also address terrorist messaging and help local law enforcement intervene to keep the youth from radicalization, DHS added.

DHS’ Office for Community Partnerships will work with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to execute the CVE grant program, which Congress established in December 2015.

The full list of awardees is posted on DHS’ website.
