Now Available: FY 2023 Solicitation for the Kevin and Avonte Program

The FY 2023 solicitation for The Kevin and Avonte Program: Reducing Injury and Death of Missing Individuals with Dementia and Developmental Disabilities is now available.

Through this opportunity, the Bureau of Justice Assistance seeks applications for funding to reduce the number of 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. This program provides funding to law enforcement and other public safety agencies to implement locative technologies that track missing individuals, and it provides funding to such agencies and partnering nonprofit organizations to develop or operate programs to prevent wandering, increase vulnerable individuals’ safety, and facilitate rescues.

Learn more about this opportunity.
