Countering violent extremism (CVE) is a key pillar of a comprehensive and sustainable counterterrorism strategy. CVE refers to actions intended to reduce the ability of violent extremists to radicalize, recruit, and mobilize followers to violence and to change the conditions that are conducive to the spread of violent extremist recruitment and radicalization of individuals or communities. CVE programming must be intentionally focused on violent extremism – and should focus particularly on preventing and/or intervening in radicalization and recruitment to violence.

This CVE grant program will support projects and activities that prevent recruitment or radicalization to violence by interrupting those efforts, building community-level resilience to them, and identifying the early signs of radicalization to violence and providing appropriate interventions through civic organizations, law enforcement, educational programs, or other entities. Community resilience in the CVE context means those communities where violent extremists routinely meet disinterest and opposition, recruitment attempts routinely fail, and communities know what tools and support are available to assist individuals that may be on a path towards violence.

The U.S. Embassy seeks CVE program proposals that will develop new efforts and expand existing efforts at the community level to counter violent extremist recruitment and radicalization to violence by funding activities that enhance the resilience of communities being targeted by violent extremists for recruitment, provide alternatives to individuals who have started down a road to violent extremism, and that create or amplify alternative messages to terrorist/violent extremist recruitment and radicalization efforts.
