COVID-19 FEMA Funeral Assistance

COVID-19 FEMA Funeral Assistance

This last year has been a very difficult one, to say the least, and we know that many families here in our local WNY community have been directly impacted by COVID-19. Please know that we are so very sorry for your loss and that our hearts are with you as you attempt to navigate the healing process. Our team at Amigone will always do everything we can to provide you with as much relief as possible, and we hope that you will find the following information helpful if only to potentially decrease your financial burden during these trying times.


The U.S. government has recently passed two acts of legislation, allowing The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide up to $9,000 in financial assistance for COVID-19 related funeral and interment, or cremation expenses that have incurred after January 20, 2020. 

How to Apply For COVID-19 FEMA Funeral Assistance

To begin your application, you must call FEMA’s COVID-19 Funeral Assistance Line:


TTY: 800-462-7585

Monday - Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.,  Eastern Time


Although an Amigone Funeral Director is not permitted to submit an application on your family's behalf,
we can certainly provide you with documentation of your loved one’s services, and the FEMA required death certificate if we have it on file.
Please contact us at (716) 836-6500 and we will do everything we can to help.
