Many are frustrated with the application terms in order to receive payments from the $20 billion fund. Kenneth Fienberg, a Washington lawyer, is in charge of dispersing the funds and will begin to travel in the region, help people fill out the forms, and explain the terms.

The rules state that people who live and work on the water such as fishermen, crabbers, shrimpers, and people who work with oysters will be receiving payments first.
