 How much funding will our jurisdiction receive?

Simple Answer:
  • We cannot provide information about anticipated funding levels.

    More Detailed Answer:
  • The yearly level of participation and requests for this program are unpredictable. Consequently, we cannot provide information about anticipated funding levels for specific jurisdictions. Given the dynamic nature of available funding and program participation, jurisdictions should complete applications based upon their current vest needs for all eligible law enforcement officers. With accurate and complete information, we will be better able to make informed funding decisions and continue to demonstrate the scope of vest needs for law enforcement officers nationwide.
