The Bulletproof Vest Partnership Grant Act authorizes BJA to award funds directly to States; the District of Columbia; the five U.S. territories; units of local government and recognized Native American tribal governments. Current legislation places the priority on funding jurisdictions that have populations under 100,000 residents. Remaining funds are distributed on a pro rata basis to jurisdictions with over 100,000 residents. BVP funds may only be used to fund up to a maximum of 50% of the actual cost of each vest.
