Grants and Leasing
How can you fund your project?
We've been helping customers find ways to purchase our custom vehicle bodies for over 60 years. Contact us to learn about financing your specialty vehicle.
We know from working with our customers that over the past years funding a project has always been a problem. On February 17, 2009, the President signed into law H.R. 1, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The bill provides more than $4 billion for state and local law enforcement and for other criminal justice activities that prevent and control crime and improve the criminal justice system.
The Office of Justice Programs (OJP), which provides federal leadership in developing the nation's capacity to prevent and control crime, administer justice, and assist victims, has been designated as the lead agency in administering $2.76 billion of this funding.
OJP funding for state and local law enforcement and other criminal and juvenile justice activities includes:
- The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program
- The Edward Byrne Competitive Grant Program
- The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant - Iowa
- Assistance for Tribal Law Enforcement (construction of jails on tribal lands)
- Assistance for Rural Law Enforcement to Combat Drug-Related Crime
- Assistance for Law Enforcement along the Southern Border and in High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA)
- Grants for Victim Compensation and Assistance
- Grants for Internet Crimes Against Children Initiatives
