COVID-19 Funeral Assistance

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought overwhelming grief to many families. At FEMA, our mission is to help people before, during and after disasters. We are dedicated to helping ease some of the financial stress and burden caused by the virus. 

Under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, FEMA is providing financial assistance for COVID-19 related funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020.

FEMA has issued its final policy, which includes details such as eligibility, documentation criteria, and the application process.  More information may be found on our FEMA COVID-19 Funeral Assistance page HERE, including Frequently Asked Questions (updated August 29, 2021).

FEMA began accepting applications for Funeral Assistance on Monday, April 12, 2021 through their dedicated call center.
