Expresses the sense of Congress that the children who lost one or both parents or a guardian in the World Trade Center and Pentagon tragedies or the aircraft crash in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, should be provided with such immediate assistance, services, and benefits for which they are eligible and which are necessary for their well-being, including foster care or adoption assistance, medical, nutritional, and psychological care, and educational services. Urges each responsible agency to act to provide such assistance, services, and benefits within 60 days of the determination of the death of the child's parents or guardian.
