Have you or someone you know lost a loved one to COVID-19?

Under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will begin to implement and provide financial assistance for COVID-19-related funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020.

FEMA anticipates rolling out this new program in mid-April, 2021 and is currently preparing to establish and open the application process.  For information on how to apply, please visit https://www.fema.gov/disasters/coronavirus/economic/funeral-assistance
