DHS/ALL/PIA-057 Countering Violent Extremism Grant Program


DHS uses the Countering Violent Extremism Grant Program (CVEGP) to fulfill a congressional mandate to help states and local communities prepare for, prevent, and respond to emergent threats from violent extremism. To properly execute the grant program and help adhere to congressional intent, DHS must ensure that grant recipients do not use Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) grant funding to support terrorism, engage in other criminal activities, or otherwise conduct or support activities that are contrary to the purpose of the program. The DHS Secretary has the discretion to consider those factors necessary to properly execute the grant program. Acting on behalf of the Secretary in administering the grant process, the DHS Office for Community Partnerships (OCP) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will review grant applications considering information and analysis contained in security assessments coordinated and produced by DHS’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A), with the assistance of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), directly in support of OCP, FEMA, and this departmental effort. This privacy impact assessment (PIA) examines the privacy implications of these security reviews.
