The consolidated and updated system of records allows the Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency to collect and maintain records from points of contact from states, tribes, local governments, and other entities applying for all grant money programs through the Federal Emergency Management Agency's public assistance grants program, disaster loan program, and the Hazard Mitigation Assistance grant programs. This system of records also allows information collection from individuals who may receive public assistance through these grants. This system of records notice includes personally identifiable information collected from individual property owners and/or occupants whose properties are identified in applications for public assistance, hazard mitigation assistance, and other disaster-related assistance or who have been identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as candidates for such assistance. The Federal Emergency Management Agency tracks the progress of the grants to the survivors, to ensure proper delivery of service, prevent duplication of benefits, and recoup any improper payment of public assistance funds. As a result of the review records have been updated within the: (1) System name; (2) system location; (3) categories of individuals; (4) categories of records; (5) authority for maintenance; (6) purpose; (7) routine uses; (8) retrievability; and (9) retention and disposal. Additionally, this notice includes non- substantive changes to simplify the formatting and text of the previously published notice. This updated system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.
