Funeral costs

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) may give you up to $9,000 to cover the costs you paid for a funeral.  FEMA will pay you back for the funeral costs you paid for someone who:

  • may have passed away from, or
  • likely passed away from COVID-19.

FEMA will pay for costs like the funeral, cremation, burial, and headstone. You must give FEMA receipts for what you paid.
