Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention (TVTP) Grant Program
The Implementation and Measurement Plan (IMP) will help applicants outline their activities to be accomplished including time frames, inputs, resources needed, and how the project will be sustained. The IMP will also help track progress, identify potential risks, and identify performance measures.
Violent extremism is one the gravest dangers facing the United States. To address this problem, federal, state, and local authorities have developed a growing number of prevention and intervention programs.
The TVTP Grant Program provides assistance to implement that goal and develops innovative solutions to prevent terrorism and targeted violence.
Past local terrorism prevention programs did not undergo robust, independent evaluation. To redress this gap, at the request of the DHS Office of Terrorism Prevention Partnerships (OTPP), S&T was looked upon to collaborate with subject matter experts in the field to study these programs’ effectiveness in delivering information about what does and does not work in the prevention space.
