FEMA COVID-19 Funeral Assistance Guidelines

At Calahan Funeral Home, Our Commitment To Families Extends Well After The Funeral.
This Includes Providing Vital Information.

If you lost a loved one due to COVID-19 and paid for that loved one's funeral, interment or cremation after January 20, 2020, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has stepped up to provide reimbursement for those expenses.

You may qualify for up to $9,000 for funeral costs related to a single loved one and up to $35,500 for funeral costs related to multiple COVID-19 deaths.

Applications for assistance open Monday, April 12, 2021, through a dedicated FEMA call center at 844-684-6333 (or 800-462-7585 for TTY).

FEMA does not permit us to submit documentation on your family's behalf.

In fact, no one can register you for FEMA Funeral Assistance but you. FEMA has received reports of scammers reaching out to people offering to register them for funeral benefits. FEMA has not sent any such notifications and will not contact you before you register for the program.

We are happy to provide you with any documentation that we have to simplify the application process for you.

Give us a call at (773) 723-4400, Monday – Friday 10am – 6pm. We’re here to help!
