The Hill: “The Trump administration is reportedly planning to end a grant program under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that provides grants to organizations that fight domestic terrorism.”

“The Countering Violent Extremism grant was established in 2016 during the Obama administration, and has given $10 million annually to distribute to organizations devoted to combating hate groups around the country.

The Trump administration’s reported decision to end funding for the grants comes just days after a shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh killed 11 people after a gunman stormed the building allegedly yelling anti-Semitic rhetoric.”
