The Federal Emergency Management Agency launched a program in April to help people pay for funeral expenses for loved ones lost to Covid-19.

Applicants, who must call FEMA’s 844-684-6333 hotline, can receive up to $9,000 per funeral and $35,500 per application. Covered expenses include the transfer of remains, burial plot, casket, clergy services, cremation and headstone, among other costs.
