People who were sexually abused by priests from the Diocese of Harrisburg can now apply to receive financial compensation from the diocese.
The diocese launched a compensation program on Tuesday for victims of sexual abuse by priests.
Officials say funding will come in the form of a loan from the "priest's retirement fund" and other existing diocesan assets.
This comes after dozens of former priests were named as child predators in a statewide grand jury report.
The Diocese of Scranton launched a similar program last month.
