 What link is there between use of JAG funds for body armor, and eligibility for the BVP program?

  • Pursuant to the BVP program statute, at 34 U.S.C. ยง 10532(c), the use of JAG funding by a unit of local government may impact its eligibility for funding under the BVP program. If a unit of local government uses JAG funds to purchase armor vests, that unit of local government cannot also receive funding under the BVP program in the same fiscal year.
