Frequently Asked Questions

How soon must we purchase vests to avoid expiration of Bulletproof Vest Partnership (BVP) program funds?

Beginning with FY 2008 funds, the use period for BVP funds is two years. Once vests are received, jurisdictions can submit a request for payment through the BVP system. Funds that have not been requested prior to the expiration date will be de-obligated and returned to the BVP fund for future distribution. See the BVP site and Fact Sheet to learn more.
