DHS Seeks to Address Domestic Terrorism 

Grants available to local communities. 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is providing a total of $20 million in grant funding to fund communities working to prevent targeted violence and terrorism in the U.S. The grants are meant to help communities with training, equipment, hiring threat analysts, and other resources to “better protect from domestic violent extremism,” according to a news release from the agency. 

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said, “As the recent radically motivated shootings in Jacksonville made painfully clear, targeted violence and terrorism can impact any community anywhere. The Department of Homeland Security is committed to confronting this threat. Through the partnership and collaboration, this grant program helps build, the department will continue to work with communities to prevent such abhorrent targeted acts from occurring.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Mayorkas to be used by God to fulfill His purposes in this nation.
  • For DHS officials as they choose recipients for the grant funding to deter domestic terrorism.
  • For wisdom for the president and members of his administration as they seek to reduce the threat of domestic terrorism.
