In addition, the Saline County Sheriff Office's Search and Rescue, Benton, AR, will expand Project Lifesaver, a rapid response system that tracks missing individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other illnesses. In the past, AFA has similarly funded the startup or expansion of Project Lifesaver programs in other communities.

Applications for AFA's next round of bi-annual grants are due August 1, 2008. In addition to these grants, AFA filters money back into the community through an annual grant, The Brodsky Grant, given to one innovative program or service, as well as through family respite care grants and an annual AFA Teens college scholarship.

For more information about AFA membership and the available funding opportunities, call 866-232-8484 or visit http://www.alzfdn.org.

Currently, more than five million Americans have Alzheimer's disease, including one-in-ten aged 65 or older and nearly one-in-two aged 85 or older. The incidence is expected to triple by mid-century.

The Alzheimer's Foundation of America is a national nonprofit organization headquartered in New York and made up of hundreds of member organizations that provide hands-on programs to meet the educational, emotional, practical and social needs of families affected by Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses. AFA's services include a toll-free hot line, counseling, educational materials, a free caregiver magazine, and professional training. For information, call (toll-free) 866-AFA-8484 or visit http://www.alzfdn.org.
