Due to the fast-approaching October 3, 2013 deadline to apply, there will be an information forum to answer your questions & concerns about the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (“VCF”) at the Jewish Community Center in Staten Island on Wednesday, August 21, 2013. The doors will open at 5:00pm, and the meeting will take place between 5:30pm and 7:30pm. Special Master Sheila Birnbaum will attend, along with local politicians.
No RSVP is required for this event but those attending may click here for information about the Victim Compensation Fund application process.

The target audience is those DDC employees, construction workers, crane operators, operating engineers, DSNY personnel, military responders, Parks Department officers, NYS Court officers, corrections officers, firefighters, police officers and others who worked on the pile and in the pit and those who worked, lived, and attended school in the exposure zone (or a personal representative of a deceased individual) who suffered physical harm or were killed as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 or the recovery effort that took place in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.
