Grants to USA IHEs, nonprofits, and state, local, and tribal agencies for projects to prevent domestic terrorism. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Funding is intended for projects that protect civil liberties while also working to prevent radicalization to violence.

The FY21 TVTP Grant Program seeks to provide funding to implement local prevention frameworks and explore innovative approaches to preventing targeted violence and terrorism. Applications are being sought in three application tracks: Promising Practices-Single Project, Promising Practices-Multiple Projects, and Innovation.

The FY21 program establishes the following priorities:

  • Preventing Domestic Violent Extremism
  • Enhancing Local Threat Assessment and Management Capabilities
  • Implementing Innovative Solutions for Preventing Targeted Violence and Terrorism
  • Challenging Online Violence Mobilization Narratives

The objectives of the TVTP Grant Program align with the objectives of developing local prevention frameworks:

  • Raising awareness of radicalization to violence,
  • Raising awareness of the risk factors for – and the protective factors against - radicalization to violence,
  • Ensuring members of the local community engage the broadest set of local stakeholders that sustain trusted partnerships and increased communications addressing radicalization to violence,
  • Ensuring members of the local community have the ability to act on their awareness training by knowing how to contact – and understanding the role of – threat assessment and management teams,
  • Ensuing members of the local community have access to multi-disciplinary threat assessment and management teams, and
  • Ensuring the local community has a variety of programs that address risk factors while also providing services supporting threat management approaches.

The TVTP Grant Program seeks to provide funding to applications that align with these objectives and that protect privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties.
