Charlotte And Norfolk Among Cities On List For Anti-Terror Grant Program

Four U-S cities will get a fresh infusion of federal anti-terror grant money, and four others will be cut off from such grants.

That's according to a new government list of urban areas considered at serious risk of attacks and eligible to share 747 million dollars.

The list obtained by The Associated Press shows the four newly eligible cities are El Paso, Texas; Norfolk, Virginia; Providence, Rhode Island; and Tucson, Arizona.

The cities that were cut from the list of 45 metropolitan areas are Toledo, Ohio; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Louisville, Kentucky; and Omaha, Nebraska.

Charlotte, North Carolina, is eligible for a share of the federal money based on the metropolitan area's risk of terror attacks. North Carolina's largest city also was listed last year.
