FEMA COVID-19 Funeral Reimbursement

Care Memorial Cremation Available to Help Families Apply for FEMA COVID-19 Funeral Reimbursement 

With the implementation of FEMA’s COVID-19 Funeral Assistance application process, Care Memorial Cremation offers its assistance to the families it served after January 20, 2020, who think they may be eligible to apply for a reimbursement. FEMA will begin accepting applications on April 12, 2021.

Any family who paid funeral expenses for a loved one whose cause of death was determined to be “COVID related” could be eligible to apply for a reimbursement (as long as the expenses were incurred after January 20, 2020).

According to the FEMA website, families can submit multiple applications, if there was more than one COVID-19 related death in the family. The assistance is limited to a maximum financial amount of $9,000 per funeral and a maximum of $35,500 per application.
