The Office of Justice Programs' Bureau of Justice Assistance in the DoJ is seeking applications for the State and Local Terrorism Prevention Training and Technical Assistance National Initiative.
That initiative also includes tribal terrorism prevention training and assistance.
According to the grants notice, funding opportunity number BJA-2010-2496, this training and technical assistance program will “further the Department’s counter-terror efforts and assist state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies to prevent acts of terror in their jurisdictions.”
In addition, the training will “emphasize that constitutional rights, civil liberties, civil rights, and privacy interests must be protected throughout the intelligence process.”
Up to $3 million in grants will be awarded under the program, though the number of grants available was not specified in the notice.
Eligible applicants, in addition to non-profits, faith-based organizations and institutions of higher learning, include “for profit organizations other than small businesses,” according to the notice.
The closing date for applications is March 18, 2010. Additional information is available from Al Roddy, at 202-353-1881.
