” The administrator of a fund for victims of the Boston Marathon bombings is warning that, although One Fund Boston is generously endowed, it doesn’t appear set to cover all the costs for those who were injured or lost loved ones in the tragedy.
Kenneth Feinberg, the attorney who is administering the account, met with victims Monday and Tuesday after releasing a draft proposal for how the funds should be distributed.
So far One Fund Boston has raised $29 million.
“I’ve learned over the years … [that] money is a pretty poor substitute for what you are going through,” Feinberg told scores of victims and family members who gathered for the hearing Monday night. “If you had a billion dollars you could not have enough money to deal with all of the problems that ought to be addressed by these attacks.” “
