To be eligible for compensation from the Victim Compensation Fund, you must have a physical injury or health condition caused by the attacks of September 11, 2001, or the rescue, debris removal, and recovery endeavors during the immediate aftermath. Moreover, you must prove that you were at one of the attack sites, within the New York City Exposure Zone, or along the routes of debris removal beginning on September 11, 2001, through May 30, 2002.
