Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, health, public safety, local, state, and Tribal law enforcement agencies for programs that reduce deaths and injuries of missing persons with developmental disabilities and dementia. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.
Objectives and Deliverables:
The objective of the program is to reduce the number deaths and injuries of individuals with forms of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s Disease, or developmental disabilities, such as autism, who due to their condition wander from safe environments, by improving local jurisdictions’ capacity to prevent and respond effectively to such instances. Achievement of this objective will be the responsibility of grantees who, per the solicitation, are state, local, and federally recognized Indian tribal government law enforcement or public safety agencies, and partnering nonprofit organizations.
Category 1: Tracking Technology (Competition ID: BJA-2019-16771) Grantees are expected to purchase, develop or implement locally-based tracking technology for individuals with forms of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s Disease, or developmental disabilities, such as autism, who due to their condition wander from safe environments.

Applicants under both categories may be asked to provide detailed information on technology companies and other organizations (public and nonprofit) they partner with to implement programs.
