In awarding these grants, KOHS gives first priority to providing and replacing body armor and second priority to providing firearms and ammunition, with residual funds available for the purchase of electronic-control weapons or electronic-muscular disruption technology and body-worn cameras. Pennyrile ADD staff assists numerous Pennyrile communities throughout the entire year in the preparation of grant applications to submit to KOHS for review.

City of Cadiz, $3,774.00 for Body Armor
