FEMA to Help Pay Funeral Costs for COVID-19-Related Deaths

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will implement COVID-19 funeral assistance in April. People who have COVID-19 funeral expenses are encouraged to keep and gather documentation.

FEMA is working to set up a dedicated toll-free (800) phone number for funeral assistance. You will be able to call this number to get an application completed with help from FEMA’s representatives.

NO ONLINE applications accepted.

Multilingual services and a TTY number will be available.

You may qualify if:

1.  You are a U.S. citizen, non-citizen national, or qualified alien who paid for funeral expenses after January 20, 2020, and

2. The funeral expenses were for an individual whose death in the United States, territories, or the District of Columbia, may have been caused by or was likely the result of COVID-19.
