FEMA will pay families up to $9,000 to help with COVID-19-related funeral costs. Here’s how to apply and who’s eligible.

Funeral costs must be dated after January 20, 2020  AND COVID-19 related in order to get reimbursed. Additionally,  FEMA will pay up to $35,000 if you’ve paid for funerals of multiple individuals.

This will be very helpful to many low income families.
