The Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention (TVTP) Grant Program provides funding for state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, nonprofits, and institutions of higher education with funds to establish or enhance capabilities to prevent targeted violence and terrorism. Developing local prevention capabilities is a key element of Goal 3 of the Strategic Framework to Counter Terrorism and Targeted Violence. The TVTP Grant Program provides assistance to implement that goal and develops innovative solutions to prevent terrorism and targeted violence.
FY2020 TVTP Grant Program
Congress provided $10 million for Fiscal Year 2020 for the TVTP Grant Program. The program will be jointly managed by the Office for Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention (OTVTP) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Awards under the program will be made on a competitive basis. Additional information will only be available when DHS releases the Notice of Funding Opportunity. Interested applicants should visit www.sam.gov and www.grants.gov to explore the requirements to apply for federal grants as some steps can take several weeks to complete.
OTVTP maintains a library of additional TVTP Grant Program Resources for use in developing and completing an application under the FY 2020 TVTP Grant Program. Interested Applicants will find the Fiscal Year 2016 Countering Violent Extremism: Preliminary Report on Programmatic Performance particularly useful, as it documents a series of promising practices and lessons learned that have gone into the design on the FY 2020 TVTP Grant Program.
FY2016 Countering Violent Extremism Grant Program
The TVTP Grant program is an evolution of the FY16 CVE Grant Program. DHS has identified lessons learned and promising practices from that program to guide the TVTP Grant Program. Please visit the CVE Grants page for more information on that program.
