BOSTON (AP) — The administrator of a fund created for people injured in the Boston Marathon bombings and the families of those who were killed plans to hold meetings with victims next week and begin cutting checks by the end of June.

Kenneth Feinberg is overseeing The One Fund, which had taken in more than $28 million as of Friday.

Feinberg says he plans to release a tentative compensation proposal on Monday in advance of two public meetings. The first meeting is to be held that evening and the second on Tuesday.

He told The Associated Press he expects the fund to begin accepting claims on May 15 and hopes to begin payments by June 30.

The Boston Globe reported that families of the three people who were killed by the bombs could each receive more than $1 million.
