The Federal Emergency Management Agency is providing financial aid for some COVID-19-related funerals in Minnesota. Byron Boka(boe-ka), with FEMA, says the agency is covering up to nine thousand dollars per person. The financial relief is just for people who paid the funeral costs for a loved one without a life insurance policy or a prepaid funeral:
“If they’ve lost more than one person they can apply for multiple individuals. That does have its own max as well — up to a maximum of 35,500.”
The aid applies to covid funeral expenses incurred after January 20th of 2020.
