DHS Announces Funding Opportunity for Fiscal Year 2019 Preparedness Grants

On April 12, Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Deputy Secretary David P. Pekoske announced the release of Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 Notices of Funding Opportunity for eight DHS preparedness grant programs totaling more than $1.7 billion. The grant programs provide funding to state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, as well as transportation authorities, nonprofit organizations, and the private sector, to improve the nation’s readiness in preventing, protecting against, responding to, recovering from and mitigating terrorist attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies. The grants reflect the Department’s focus on funding for programs that address our nation’s immediate security needs and ensure public safety in our communities.

Systematic Reviews of Terrorism Prevention Research

Neither international borders nor a single ideology constrains or limits threats posed by terrorism, domestic radicalization, or returning foreign fighters. Accordingly, many countries have invested in research within their local contexts to build the global body of evidence in terrorism prevention. However, this research is often inaccessible to intended end users, many of whom cannot effectively retrieve the research or analyze it for operational needs.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), in coordination with the Five Country Research and Development (5RD) Terrorism Prevention Network, identified a need to conduct systematic reviews of prior research and evaluations.
