Frequently Asked Questions

How do we go about applying for additional funds to cover the less than 50% federal share we received from last year's application?

To ensure that BVP funds are used only to purchase vests that meet NIJ standards that are in place when the funds are awarded, new program criteria have been established. Beginning with FY 2006, BVP funds may not be used to cover any portion of vests purchased prior to the specified order date, indicated on the BVP log in page. For FY 2006 awards, funding may only be used toward the purchase of vests ordered on or after April 1, 2006. Please Note: This order date restriction does not apply to BVP awards made prior to FY 2006.
