In February, they put out a plan outlining the following qualifications for payment.

  • Legal heirs of those who were killed as a direct result of the shooting
  • Those who were physically injured by gunshot wounds in the shooting
  • Those who meet the eligibility requirements designated for psychological trauma
  • Those who were present on campus and either provided direct assistance to a gunshot victim or took extraordinary action to prevent loss of life.

The deadline to file an application for the fund is May 6.

On June 13, the committee is expected to approve fund distributions. Money will begin going out on June 17.
