FEMA Funeral Assistance
FEMA will begin accepting applications for Funeral Assistance on Monday, April 12th through our dedicated call center. The following number will be used for those applying: 844-684-6333. FEMA's Funeral Assistance website has been updated (https://www.fema.gov/disasters/coronavirus/economic/funeral-assistance) with this information. Note that we do have a recording on that number to remind callers that the application period doesn’t open until April 12, along with other tips to help with the Application process. Until the program opens, we are asking you to assist us to amplify these messages:
- Gather Your Documentation Now - Being prepared will help the application process go as smoothly as possible.
- Patience when Applying – We anticipate high call volume in the first days of the program. There is currently no end date to the application period, and we do not intend to rush through calls to ensure each applicant is treated with empathy and respect.
