More than $24 million went out Friday to mostly Jewish not-for-profit organizations in major cities across the country, because the federal government considers them to be at high risk of terror attacks. The Homeland Security Department decided which nonprofits would receive the 308 grants based on threat and risk information. Organizations in Chicago and New York were the top recipients.
