Covid-19 Information



FEMA COVID-19 FUNERAL ASSISTANCE


Under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, Congress authorized FEMA to provide financial assistance to individuals who incurred COVID-19-related funeral expenses after January 20, 2020.


How To Apply:

COVID-19 Funeral Assistance Line Number
844-684-6333 ● TTY: 800-462-7585
Hours of Operation: Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. CT
https://www.fema.gov/disasters/coronavirus/economic/funeral-assistance


Families can begin applying for assistance on April 12, 2021.
Funeral Homes are not allowed to call and register/apply for the funds.

FEMA will only award COVID-19 Funeral Assistance for a deceased individual on a single application. If multiple individuals contributed toward funeral expenses, they should register under a single application as applicant and co-applicant. Families should begin deciding who the applicant and any co-applicants will be and gather the documents they need to be reimbursed for qualifying expenses.

If the funeral was pre-paid by any type of Preneed payments (Insurance/Trust) the individual is not eligible for the Funeral Assistance. The individual may still apply for assistance if the funeral bill exceeds the prepaid amount up to $9,000. If the individual is eligible for funeral assistance, they will receive a check by mail, or funds by direct deposit, depending on which option they choose when they apply. The funds cannot be “assigned” to the funeral home.

This is only a brief summary of the FEMA Funeral Assistance information. The FEMA Funeral Assistance website with more specific detailed information is below, along with the phone numbers that families can call to begin the application process.
