  • Medical (including dental and rehabilitation)
  • Mental health care
  • Property loss, repair, replacement
  • Funeral and burial
  • Miscellaneous expenses (such as temporary lodging, local transportation, telephone costs, emergency travel)

Program Requirements:

In order to qualify for this benefit, you must be a U.S. national or a U.S. government officer/employee. The individual victim must have suffered "direct physical or emotional injury or death as a result of an act of international terrorism occurring on or after October 23, 1983, with respect to which an investigation or prosecution was ongoing or was commenced after April 24, 1996".
