The Coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic has impacted so many families across the nation.

FEMA, (Federal Emergency Management Agency) has assisted people before, during and after natural disasters. Due to the pandemic, this organization is offering to ease some of the financial stress and burden caused by the virus.

Under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, FEMA will provide financial assistance for COVID-19-related funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020.

This is especially helpful, for families who may have lost more than one family member or for those who have delayed any memorial services over the last year. Amendments or new agreements can be put in place, to pay tribute for those who you have lost. Families can receive reimbursement up to $9,000 for family members that passed from this terrible virus.

The Coronavirus Response and Relief Appropriations Act will be rolling out April 12, 2021.

For assistance, please call Hitzeman Funeral Home & Cremation Services. We would be honored to assist you with the application process or to pay tribute to your loved one if you did not have an opportunity to do so.
