What is the WTC Health Program?
The WTC Health Program provides health benefits directly to first responders and recovery workers who assisted at Ground Zero, the Pentagon, and the crash site near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Additionally, the WTC Health Program provides health evaluations and treatment to people who were present in the 9/11 disaster area in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn on or in the months after 9/11.
Along with the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund, the WTC Health Program was authorized by the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 (Zadroga Act). The WTC Health Program will expire in October 2015, and the VCF in October 2016, unless reauthorized by Congress. Unless the programs are extended, tens of thousands of emergency responders and victims will no longer receive health care and compensation.
