One Fund Finalizes Award Priorities For Bombing Victims
A procedure for how money will be distributed from the One Fund Boston to marathon bombing victims is now in place. Fund administrator Kenneth Feinberg announced yesterday that his protocol for awarding money to victims will begin with the families of those who died, followed by those who suffered double amputations and permanent brain injury. Victims who suffered a single amputation will then receive a portion of the remaining money, followed by those who were injured and spent at least one night in the hospital.
Feinberg says he plans to distribute the money in the fund on the last day of June based on applications received by the June 15th deadline.
