As you know, after years of effort by the 9/11 community and its supporters, Congress passed and President Obama signed into law the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act Reauthorization.

The Act,  reauthorizes the World Trade Center Health Program for the next 75 years, ensuring health care and medical monitoring for 9/11 responders and survivors. 

It also extended the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund for another 5 years and while providing additional funds for both programs.

You can go to our sister organization Citizens for the Extension of the James Zadroga Act , which worked on convincing Congress that the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act should be renewed and extended to find out more about the advocacy that lead to its renewal.

You can also find out how you can keep Congress up to date on the need for the law in preparation for the needed renewal in 2020 of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.
