The Federal Emergency Management Agency is the managing partner for the creation of a Web portal for all types of disaster assistance and crisis response, tentatively named DisasterHelp.gov. The portal is one of 24 cross-agency e-government initiatives.

"They should be able to come to one place and find the full suite of products," said Ronald Miller, chief information officer and assistant director of the Information Technology Services Directorate at FEMA.

The agency also is participating in seven other e-government initiatives:

Wireless public safety, interoperable communications (Treasury Department).*

Geospatial information one-stop (Interior Department).

Online access for loans (Education Department).

USA Service, to allow citizens to enter personal information once for all federal government services (General Services Administration).

Eligibility assistance online (Labor Department)

E-Grants (Department of Health and Human Services).

E-Authentication (GSA).
