United Against Violence Funding Cut

 (CNN)The Department of Homeland Security is cutting some organizations [Including $150,000 earmarked for Project HELP Nevada's United Against Violence project] out of grant money to counter violent extremism -- including nearly a dozen that the Obama administration considered worthy of receiving the funds.

​The department announced the revised list of 26 recipients for the $10 million in total grant money last week, excluding organizations that the Obama administration had designated receive funding, which aims to foster community-based solutions to countering terrorist recruitment and radicalization.

 

​One such organization is Life After Hate, which the Obama administration told just before leaving office in January would receive $400,000 to expand its outreach and intervention services for former white supremacists and others in the "criminal underground."
