The city of Charlotte will receive $3 million this year to prepare for and prevent terror attacks.
It is part of the federal government's anti-terrorism grant, created after September 11, 2001.
Homeland Security said Charlotte is one of 39 high risk areas for attacks, because of its population density and other factors that officials won't discuss.
Charlotte will decide exactly how to use the money for things like training drills.
