The money will go to victims and relatives of the three people killed and 23 wounded by the bombs the former UC Berkeley assistant math professor mailed to scientists and industry executives between 1978 and 1995.  
It's only a small fraction of the $15 million in restitution that Kaczynski was ordered to pay when he was sentenced to life in prison in 1998, but it's the most substantial sum his victims are likely to receive.  
"It's good news and bad news," said George Grotz, a now-retired FBI agent who helped trace Kaczynski to his wilderness cabin and arrest him in 1996. "I hate to see him glorified, ... yet if there is some good that comes out of this for the victims, obviously that's on the positive side."
