This Pandemic has put many low income families in crisis trying to tend to the funeral expenses of their loved ones. Please pass this information on to your neighbors and friends.
The Human Resources Administration (HRA) will provide financial assistance to individuals in need of assistance to meet funeral expenses. Low-income New York City residents may be eligible for up to $900 in financial assistance to meet funeral expenses for a deceased low income New York City resident family member or friend.
Click on the link to go the HRA page for the application and requirements.
If the death of your loved one is due to the Coronavirus, you may be eligible to apply for funeral assistance through FEMA. Use the link and check the site for eligibility requirements.
Not all applicants reporting funeral expenses will be eligible for Funeral Assistance. Some common reasons for ineligibility include:
· The death was not attributed to the declared incident
· Funeral expenses are fully covered by other sources of assistance
· Insufficient and/or incomplete documentation
