The applicant must be a U.S. citizen, non-citizen national, or qualified alien who incurred funeral expenses after Jan. 20, 2020 for a death attributed to COVID-19.

The deceased does not have to be a U.S. citizen.

The COVID-19-related death must have occurred in the United States, including the U.S. territories and the District of Columbia.
