(This amendment provides funding for Project Lifesaver, a program that provides a means for prompt location of persons with mental impairments who have wandered away from their residences. Through the use of state-of-the-art technology, persons afflicted with Alzheimers Disease and other related mental disorders, as well as those with Down's Syndrome, are fitted with personalized radio transmitters which emit a signal that can be tracked, and the person can be located in a short period of time.)
