Nuclear Threat Initiative was awarded $8,230,600 between 2004 and 2018, including 10 grants in International Peace & Security and Nuclear Challenges.

$37,000

2018 • 3 months

The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with a mission to strengthen global security by reducing the risk of use and preventing the spread of nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons and to work to build trust, transparency, and security. With MacArthur support NTI is developing a web-based interactive graphic tool on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The intended outcome of this award is to improve the quality of the debate on the JCPOA by clearly articulating—to policymakers and other influencers—the restrictions that the JCPOA places on the Iranian nuclear program.  

$23,600

2018 • 6 months

The Nuclear Threat Initiative works to prevent catastrophic attacks with weapons of mass destruction and disruption (WMDD)—nuclear, biological, radiological, chemical, and cyber. With MacArthur support NTI experts will conduct a series of briefings in Saudi Arabia related to upcoming policy choices about Riyadh’s development of civilian nuclear power. The intended outcome of this award is to educate policy makers and increase the quality of policy discussions on nuclear nonproliferation and security, and how they relate to decisions on nuclear energy.

$170,000

2016 • 2 years • Nuclear Challenges

The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that works to strengthen global security by reducing the risk of use and preventing the spread of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons and to build trust, transparency, and security. This award supports an NTI-led effort to convene an international conference in Chile with government officials and other stakeholders that aims to improve the prospects of establishing a highly enriched uranium (HEU)-free region in Latin America. The event is designed to address the legal, political, and institutional steps necessary to establish such a region—and build upon momentum from the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit (NSS). The intended outcome is to facilitate a formal agreement that would strengthen the norm against using HEU for civilian purposes, and could be used as a model for similar agreements in other regions.

$2,500,000

2016 • 2 years • Nuclear Challenges

The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with a mission to strengthen global security by reducing the risk of use and preventing the spread of nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons and to work to build trust, transparency, and security. This award provides general operating support, allowing NTI to continue to work with governments, international institutions, leaders and partners from around the world to develop policies and to build human and institutional capacity to address issues of global security. It also allows NTI the means to respond quickly to new challenges and opportunities that arise with little or no warning. It particularly supports NTI’s efforts to address global nuclear security, including projects such as the fourth edition of NTI Nuclear Materials Security Index, and conducting a global dialogue on nuclear material priorities, as a means of sustaining and extending gains made through the Nuclear Security Summit process.

$1,500,000

This award will support NTI’s efforts to strengthen global nuclear materials security and reduce proliferation concerns. As part of its work under this general operating support, NTI continues two highly successful projects under previous grants—developing the third edition of NTI Nuclear Materials Security Index, and conducting a global dialogue on nuclear security priorities—to promote strong nuclear security outcomes at the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit.
