BVP Program

The Bulletproof Vest Partnership (BVP) was enacted as law in 1998 as a U.S. Department of Justice initiative designed to provide funding to purchase body armor for law enforcement. Since 1999, BVP has awarded $447 million to over 13,000 jurisdictions nationwide helping to purchase more than 1.3 million vests.

The Bulletproof Vest Partnership Grant Act currently allows jurisdictions to be reimbursed up to 50% of the cost of body armor purchased for law enforcement officers. Current law gives priority funding to jurisdictions with fewer than 100,000 residents. To be eligible to qualify for the reimbursement, body armor purchased must comply with the most current NIJ body armor standards as of the date of purchase and the agency is required to have a mandatory wear policy.
