Funeral Expense Relief

Soon, low-income families will be able to apply for retroactive reimbursements to cover the cost of burying their loved ones lost to COVID-19. These reimbursements will be retroactive to January 2020. If you want to apply for reimbursement, you should collect documentation verifying your identity and relation to the deceased; get a death certificate that lists the death as related to COVID-19; and collect receipts for costs associated with the funeral. Only one relation to the deceased will be able to apply, and at this time that relative must be a citizen or legal U.S. resident, so please coordinate with your family to decide who that will be.

As soon as applications are open, we will update this page and notify the community, but you should begin the process of collecting the necessary documents now.
