COVID Funeral Assistance Available to Your Patrons



FEMA logoThere have been more than 700 COVID-related deaths in Wyoming. Families in your communities may be dealing not only with the tragedy of losing a loved one, but also the burden of funeral expenses. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has a program that can help your patrons, and you can help spread the word.

FEMA is providing financial assistance for funeral expenses related to COVID-19 that were incurred after January 20, 2020. To be eligible, the death must have occurred in the United States (including U.S. Territories and the District of Columbia) and the death certificate must indicate the death was attributed to or caused by COVID-19.

You can download, print, and share the flyer to let your patrons know that this assistance is available. More information is also available at FEMA.gov/funeral-assistance/faq.
