BOSTON (AP) - The charity set up to help victims of the Boston Marathon bombings has another $18 million to disburse.

The One Fund Boston is currently in the process of deciding how to spend the money.

The nonprofit said it plans to give the majority to those who sustained the most severe physical injuries, including victims who lost limbs. It may use some to partner with hospitals and city and state agencies to pay for programs and services that victims need.

The plans are included in a three-page letter posted Monday on the organization’s website.

The charity last July distributed $61 million in donations to more than 230 people hurt and relatives of the four killed.

Organization President Jim Gallagher tells The Boston Globe (https://bit.ly/1qyPm2U ) the charity will exist as long as it’s needed.
