The COVID-19 pandemic has brought overwhelming grief to many families. FEMA's mission is to help people before, during and after disasters — and they are dedicated to helping ease some of the financial stress and burden caused by the virus. This is why FEMA is providing financial assistance for COVID-19-related funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020.

FEMA is accepting applications for Funeral Assistance through the dedicated call center.

To apply for assistance, call FEMA’s COVID-19 Funeral Assistance Helpline at 1-844-684-6333 (TTY: 800-462-7585) Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. MDT.
