The 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is a federal program that provides compensation to individuals and families affected by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and their aftermath. The fund was established by Congress in 2001 to provide financial assistance to those who suffered physical harm or death as a result of the attacks, as well as to those who were injured or became ill due to the subsequent rescue and recovery efforts.
The VCF is administered by the Department of Justice and operates under guidelines established by the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act of 2001. The program provides financial assistance to eligible individuals and families for medical expenses, lost earnings, and other costs associated with their injuries or illnesses related to the 9/11 attacks.
In 2019, the VCF was extended to ensure that compensation is available for eligible claimants through 2090. Since its inception, the VCF has awarded more than $7 billion in compensation to over 34,000 claimants.
