Subpart A—International Terrorism Victim Expense Reimbursement Program

Payment of Claims

§94.41   Interim emergency payment.

Claimants may apply for an interim emergency payment, prior to a determination under §94.21(a). If the Director determines that such payment is necessary to avoid or mitigate substantial hardship that may result from delaying reimbursement until complete and final consideration of an application, such payment may be made to cover immediate expenses such as those of medical care, funeral and burial, short-term lodging, and emergency transportation. The amount of an interim emergency payment shall be determined on a case-by-case basis, and shall be deducted from the final award amount.

§94.42   Repayment and waiver of repayment.

A victim or representative shall reimburse the program upon a determination by the Director that an interim emergency award or final award was: Made to an ineligible victim or claimant; based on fraudulent information; or an overpayment. Except in the case of ineligibility pursuant to a determination by the Director, in consultation with appropriate DOJ officials, under §94.21(b), the Director may waive such repayment requirement in whole or in part, for good cause, upon request.
