FEMA Funeral Reimbursement to End September 30, 2025
Since FEMA began accepting applications for COVID-19 Funeral Assistance in April 2021, the agency has provided nearly $3 billion in assistance to more than 438,000 people, with an average award of $6,400. As you may have heard, the COVID-19 public health emergency ended on May 11, 2023. FEMA has announced that it will continue to provide funeral assistance until September 30, 2025, to those who paid for the funeral of a loved one who died due to COVID-19.
If you have a loved one that passed due to COVID-19 or know a family who have experienced a death from COVID-19 and have not submitted an application to FEMA for funeral expense reimbursement, please contact Spence Funeral Services for assistance.
