DHS/FEMA/PIA-002 9/11 Heroes Stamp Act of 2001 File System

This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) applies to the systems and procedures implemented by FEMA to distribute the funds raised from the sale of the Heroes semipostal stamp to benefit eligible emergency relief personnel killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty and to their families. The Heroes Stamp Act, Public Law 107-67, directed the United States Postal Service (USPS) to issue a semipostal stamp and distribute the proceeds through the Federal Emergency Management Agency to the families of emergency relief personnel killed or permanently disabled while serving in the line of duty in connection with the terrorist attacks against the United States on September 11, 2001. In order to distribute the funds, it is necessary for FEMA to collect and maintain in a database, which is used to track agency activities, personal information from either the victims or their personal representatives.
