The settlement was made under the Independent Compensation and Reconciliation (IRCP) program that was established by the New York Archdiocese to help sexual abuse victims.

The goal of the IRCP was to bring consolation and relief to the victim’s of clergy sexual abuse. The $40 million settlement was funded by a long-term loan to the Archdiocese. The Archdiocese did not divert any money that was donated to support local schools, parishes or charitable organizations.
