I wanted to reach out to make you aware your family may be eligible for a special program from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that offers funeral assistance to families that have experienced the death of a loved one due to COVID-19.
FEMA’s mission is to help people before, during and after disasters. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused immense grief for so many people. FEMA has a plan to help with funeral and burial expenses that many families, like yours, did not anticipate.
FEMA COVID-19 Funeral Assistance offers up to $9,000 for certain expenses that families have incurred. (e.g., funeral and memorial services and burial and cremation).
The FEMA website has complete information about eligibility requirements, documentation you will be required to provide as part of your application (e.g., a copy of your loved one’s death certificate and proof of funeral expenses incurred), and how to start the application process.
If there is anything I can do to assist you with the application process – such as by ordering copies of a death certificate or providing copies of receipts showing the expenses you incurred – please call me at 732 462-0895 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
