WASHINGTON – -(AmmoLand.com)- The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has awarded $10 million to 29 select projects to support the development of a nationwide Terrorism and Targeted Violence Prevention (TVTP) Framework. These awards were made through a competitive process under the Fiscal Year 2020 Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grant Program.

“With these grants, DHS has prioritized programs aimed at improving communities’ ability to prevent individuals from mobilizing or radicalizing to violence. These programs will create or enhance locally-based prevention frameworks to address these emerging threats,” said Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad F. Wolf. “DHS stands in absolute opposition to violent extremism, no matter its motivation or form. We will continue our constant efforts to combat all forms of domestic terror.”

These projects address the wide range of violent ideologies and mobilization factors that lead to targeted violence. This Fiscal Year’s program prioritized countering domestic terrorism. The TVTP Grant Program builds on the promising practices in the field of prevention. It is the only federal grant program dedicated to enhancing prevention capabilities in local communities.

Projects selected under the TVTP Grant Program cover many aspects of prevention, including building resilience, intervention, recidivism prevention, and reintegration programs at the local level. The projects selected directly support the objectives of the September 2019 DHS Strategic Framework for Countering Terrorism and Targeted Violence. Making these funds available for local prevention partners is a key milestone in the implementation of the Strategic Framework.

DHS evaluated 95 eligible applicants based on selection criteria, prioritization of grant program objective, and diversity of applicant types, activities, and geographic distribution as outlined in the FY20 Notice of Funding Opportunity. TVTP Grant Program funds support the development of local prevention capabilities at a time when DHS is observing an uptick in online efforts for terrorism recruitment and radicalization from a variety of sectors.

We will continue our constant efforts to combat all forms of domestic terror.” Yeah they sure are doing a good job with Antifa, and Bowel movement, AKA BLM. They have allowed Antifa, and BM to take over cities, and to hijack the protests, and turn them into riots. We’ve been fighting the Commie Rat Bastards [CRBs] for more than half a century.Now we see the Democrats are not only backing them, but have embraced their ideology, and they sing the praises of the CRBs, and demonize true patriots like Rittenhouse,Trump, and many others. When you get a chance, ask a… Read more »

You are about 76 years behind in recognizing that Democrats adopted the Socialism platform. Norman Thomas, the six-time Socialist Party candidate for U.S. President, said the following in a 1944 speech: “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened…. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” And, today, the Republican Party RINOs have adopted it as well.… Read more »

10 million dollars is chump change compared to Bloomberg and Soros. Cut the heads off these anti-American vipers and then see what happens.

I wonder if the groups that form because of the actual terrorists like BLM and [email protected]@@s are going to be put on the list because they are fighting too. Not against the government but for the people and the DHS will not recognize them because they are interfering with what they consider their job only and their actions are not authorized by the government. Is this a double edged sword?

Out here in rural Az. we already have a sure cure for things and people like the drug cartels, muggers, rapists, thieves, looters, rioters, corrupt politicians, corrupt judges, corrupt lawyers and terrorists —— we shoot back. No taxes, no politicians, no lawyers or judges needed. Actually saves A LOT OF MONEY, TIME, FANFARE AND SPEECHES. Let the American citizen defend himself, his family, friends, neighbors, co workers etc. Not only is this a natural law, it is also constitutional and past that it’s mandatory through the highest law– SCRIPTURE.

Arm up, carry on
