What We Do

The Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (CP3) builds partnerships and provides funding, training, and increased public awareness across every level of government, the private sector, and in local communities. We connect targeted violence and terrorism prevention (TVTP) providers, curate TVTP research and best practices, and aid states and communities in building strategies and programs. CP3’s approach is informed by the Social-Ecological Model and the CDC Violence Prevention frameworks, along with other public health-informed principles. 

What We Do

TVTP Grants

The Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grant Program is a cornerstone of our efforts, providing funding for state, local, tribal, and territorial governments; nonprofits; and institutions of higher education to establish or enhance capabilities to prevent targeted violence and terrorism.
