Anti-Terrorism Program for America’s Poor Communities Announces Grant Availability

Deadline: May 20, 2005

In order to address the threat of terrorism to America’s low-income communities, many of which are located near power plants, chemical factories, and transportation centers, the Community Action Partnership (<a href=""></a>), a national anti-poverty program, has created the Community Land Security program. Local versions of the program are currently operating in Middlesex County, New Jersey; Bolivar County, Mississippi; and Knox County, Kentucky; and will soon be expanding to more communities across the country.

The partnership is offering seven $10,000 grants that will help Community Action Agencies (CAAs) across the United States implement and manage Community Land Security programs in their communities. CAAs must complete an application and be able to raise $10,000 in matching funds in order to be considered. The partnership will provide the selected CAAs with onsite training for implementing the program and ongoing technical assistance.

Eligible applicants are Community Action Agencies (i.e., recipients of Community Services Block Grant 90 percent pass-through funding) that are members in good standing of the Community Action Partnership at the time of application.

Visit the Community Action Partnership Web site for information on the partnership and to download the Community Land Security Notice of Funding Availability.
