Nebraska CVE grant reports

Ava Sasani filed this request with the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency of Nebraska.


From: Ava Sasani

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Nebraska Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

All grant reporting documents submitted to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) between January 2017 and July 2019 about your usage of the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) grant.

Your organization was listed as by the DHS as a CVE grant recipient here:

On the DHS web page listed above, there are quarterly summary updates that say your organization “has trained their partner agencies on the threat assessment tools it has developed, conducted outreach on its capabilities, and conducted a baseline survey with some of its desired audiences. Furthermore, the project team continues to share its efforts with the broader health professional community nationwide that may be interested in implementing similar efforts by participating in conferences and authoring articles in practitioner newsletters.”

I would like the results and all documentation related to the above listed "baseline survey"and all documents your organization shared with this "broader health community."
I would also like all qualitative and quantitative reporting that your organization has submitted to the DHS explaining how your agency has carried out these CVE goals and projects.

This should include any financial statements and documents explaining how your $300,000 CVE grant from the DHS (in 2017) has been spent. This should include at least one report for each quarter since 2017 explaining deliverables and progress to the DHS.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.
