In April of 2021 FEMA began to provide financial assistance for funeral expenses that occur after January 20, 2020, if COVID-19 is on the death certificate. There are some limits, in that the funeral amount for one individual cannot exceed $9,000.00. This will cover funeral services, interment or cremation. If you paid a funeral bill for loved one and wish to be reimbursed, call 844-684-63333. It is great for families that lost a loved one at a younger age who did not do any funeral planning.
