FY 2016 Violence Prevention Grant Evaluations, October 2021


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 efficacy of these initiatives, however, largely remains unknown and there is a substantial need for evaluative efforts to assess the process and outcomes associated with these initiatives. In this report, we provide results from an evaluation of five countering violent extremism (CVE) programs funded by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office for Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention* FY2016 grant program. We use the terminology countering violent extremism (CVE) throughout the report as it was the terminology used at the time of the evaluation.

*Recently, the DHS stopped using that terminology and is now emphasizing terrorism prevention and community partnerships.
