Survivors of former doctor Larry Nassar’s abuse at Michigan State University can get money for therapy again.

The university allocated $10 million for the so-called Healing Assistance Fund. It was shut down last summer. Police are still investigating whether some people made false claims and got reimbursed fraudulently.

In December 2017, the Michigan State University Board of Trustees authorized the establishment of a $10 million fund to pay for counseling for survivors of abuse by Larry Nassar. The fund is called the Healing Assistance Fund and was set up early in 2018. It is separate from a May 2018 $500 million settlement agreement between MSU and Nassar survivors.
