(CNN) — A proposal on how to give out donated funds for Sandy Hook victims was introduced at a public hearing in Newtown, Connecticut.

A fund for victims has raised more than $11.5 million so far.

Under the proposal, about $7.7 million would be given out to families of victims and survivors of the massacre.

The balance of the money — about $4 million — will be used to meet the long-term needs of the community as it tries to move forward.

Some people, however, are questioning why all of the money isn’t going to those most affected by the shootings.

On December 14th, a gunman fatally shot his mother at home, then killed 20 children and six educators at the school before taking his own life.
