Overview

For the purposes of this solicitation, radicalization is the process by which individuals enter into violent extremism. Violent extremists are those individuals who support or commit ideologically motivated violence to further political, social, or religious goals. Further, for the purposes of this solicitation, “domestic radicalization” will limit applicants to focus on radicalization as it occurs in the United States, regardless of the locale of violent extremism that ensues from radicalization. While applicants are encouraged to use comparative approaches in their applications where warranted, applications must focus their findings on how radicalization occurs within the United States.

This funding will support replication and evaluation of existing programs as well as the development and evaluation of programs where none currently exists. Funded projects will apply an “action research” approach that engages researchers and practitioners in an active partnership to develop more effective solutions to specific problems and to produce transportable lessons and strategies that may help other localities with similar problems.
