State fund could aid Marathon bombing victims

Coakley’s office disburses money

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings that killed three and injured more than 260, many of the victims and their families are expected to turn to the One Fund Boston charity for help.

But those affected by the explosions on Boylston Street may also qualify for another pool of money that has gone largely unnoticed: the state’s Victim Compensation Fund , administered by the ­attorney general’s office. The fund could provide up to $25,000 in aid to those who qualify.
