Fifteen emergency responders who worked at Ground Zero will be the first to receive awards from the new Sept. 11 victim-compensation fund, for amounts ranging from $10,000 to $1.5 million, officials said Tuesday.
The fund has received fewer than 100 completed applications for money, officials said. That suggests the program may end up receiving far less than the 34,000 total claims for aid that fund officials estimated.Posted on August 14, 2015

Dear Friends, supporters and Fellow Responders,
As many of you know, the October 3rd deadline to register for the Victims Compensation Fund (VCF) has passed. Hopefully all of you who registered are eligible to receive compensation. With the Oct 3rd deadline passed, the FealGood Foundation has made a significant change as we are headed into year three of the Zadroga Bill (HR 847).
