The 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund has over $10.2 billion to pay people who have cancer or are sick because of exposure near the World Trade Center after 9/11.
According to the United States Department of Justice, the WTC Victim Compensation Fund “was created to provide compensation for any individual (or a personal representative of a deceased individual) who suffered physical harm or was killed as a result of the terrorist-related aircraft crashes of September 11, 2001 or the debris removal efforts that took place in the immediate aftermath of those crashes.”
