COVID-19 Funeral Assistance Program in New Orleans, LA

The COVID-19 Funeral Assistance will provide up to $9000 in financial assistance for those who qualify for Covid-19 related funeral expenses.

The guidelines and details are being finalized. However, it will require an official death certificate that lists Covid-19 as a direct or indirect cause of death, along with funeral expense documents. For a complete list of what qualifies visit the FEMA website at

The only way to confirm whether a person qualifies which is also the way they must apply is to call the hotline. The number is:

(844) 684-6333 or TTY: (800) 462-7585)

Only one application per deceased individual is allowed and FEMA requests that the applicant wait until all expenses, both past and those anticipated in the future, are known before applying for the reimbursement. Now is the time to gather the documents needed to satisfy eligibility.

If we served your family we can assist you with copies of the funeral expenses contract or securing an official death certificate. If you have any questions even if we did not serve your family or need to secure these documents, please contact us at (504) 618-1564.

Please share with anyone you know who may benefit from this information.
