Event Details

In December 2020, Congress passed, and the President signed, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 into law as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. The law provides FEMA with an unprecedented $2 billion to reimburse individuals and households for COVID-19-related funeral expenses incurred between January 20, 2020 and December 31, 2020 at 100% federal cost-share. 

FEMA would like to hear tribal concerns on the process to support the delivery of funeral assistance. Therefore, FEMA is hosting a virtual tribal consultation session to receive input from tribal nations on funeral assistance policies and procedures.

During the event, FEMA staff will provide an overview of FEMA funeral assistance, the key provisions of the proposed interim policy, and the simplified delivery process and procedures being advocated to reduce the administrative burden on tribal governments and eligible applicants.

Registration:

Please register in advance for the session, via Zoom. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the session.

Event Time: 2:00 PM EST - 4:00 PM EST
