DHS Awards $7 Million in Grants to Promote ‘Media Literacy’

As a part of its Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Program (TVTP), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has awarded $7 million in grants to organizations, academic institutions, and local municipalities to promote what they call “media literacy.”

In a Sept. 14 press release, the DHS announced the introduction of $20 million in grants to 43 organizations “working to prevent targeted violence and terrorism.” These 43 grants are a part of DHS’ Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention (TVTP) Grant Program for the 2022 Fiscal Year (FY22).

The TVTP project began in 2020 and has since supported 88 organizations across 32 states, totaling $50 million in grants.

According to the project’s webpage, “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.” – READ MORE
