U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Community Engagement: Webinars July 20th and 25th

Dear Community Partners,

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Community Engagement section would like to share the following invitation with you:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) invites you to an upcoming webinar on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) FY 2016 Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Grant Program.

Last year, Secretary Johnson and the DHS Office for Community Partnerships identified the need to make direct awards to non-governmental organizations for community-based countering violent extremism programs. Congress has also been supportive of this effort by appropriating $10 million specifically to support local CVE efforts.

On July 6, 2016, DHS announced the FY 2016 CVE Grant Program. For the first time, non-governmental organizations will be eligible for DHS funding to promote community resilience against the threat of violent extremism.

A series of webinars have been scheduled to assist non-governmental organizations and institutions of higher education to understand the grant program’s goals, core elements, review process, and timeline and have an opportunity to ask questions about the information presented. For your convenience, we are offering the same webinar on two different dates.

The FY 2016 CVE Grant Program is funded by DHS and administered by FEMA.

WHAT: Webinar on the DHS FY 2016 CVE Grant Program

WHO: The DHS Office for Community Partnerships and FEMA Grant Program
Directorate

WHEN: Wed., July 20, 2016 – 2 to 3 p.m. (EST)
