FEMA ASSISTANCE

COVID-19 Funeral Assistance

The COVID-19  pandemic has brought overwhelming grief to many families. At FEMA, our mission is to
help people before, during, and after disasters. We are dedicated to helping ease some of the
financial stress and burden caused by the virus.

Under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 and the American
Rescue Plan Act of 2021, FEMA will provide financial assistance for COVID-19- related funeral
expenses incurred after January 20, 2020.

We are working with stakeholder groups to get their input on ways we can best provide this
assistance and to enlist their help with outreach to families and communities.  FEMA will begin to
implement COVID-19 funeral assistance in April.

Additional guidance is being finalized and will be released to potential applicants and community partners as soon as possible. In the meantime, people who have COVID-19 funeral expenses are encouraged to keep and gather documentation.

We are working to set up a dedicated toll-free phone number that can be used to apply for funeral assistance. More information will be available on this page soon.

Who is Eligible?

To be eligible for funeral assistance, you must meet these conditions:

•     The death must have occurred in the United States, including the U.S. territories, and the
District of Columbia.
•     The death certificate must indicate the death was attributed to COVID-19.
•     The applicant must be a U.S. citizen, non-citizen national, or a qualified alien who incurred funeral expenses after January 20, 2020.
•     There is no requirement for the deceased person to have been a U.S. citizen, non-citizen national, or qualified alien.

How to Apply


In April, FEMA will begin accepting applications. If you had COVID-19 funeral expenses, we
encourage you to keep and gather documentation. Types of information should include:

•     An official death certificate that attributes the death directly or indirectly to COVID-19 and shows that the death occurred in the United States, including the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia.
•     Funeral expenses documents (receipts, funeral home contract, etc.) that include the applicant's name, the deceased person's name, the amount of funeral expenses, and the dates the funeral expenses happened.
•     Proof of funds received from other sources specifically for use toward funeral costs. We are
not able to duplicate benefits received from burial or funeral insurance, financial assistance
received from voluntary agencies, government agencies, or other sources.

How are Funds Received


If you are eligible for funeral assistance you will receive a check by mail, or funds by direct deposit, depending on which option you choose when you apply for assistance.

CDC Guidelines and town mandates for usage for Community Center

Required is the use of masks among staff and attendees at the event.

Masks are most essential in times when physical distancing is difficult (e.g., when moving within a crowd or audience).

Social distancing measures are in effect. You are mandated because of limited space in the community center to not have more than fifty (50) individuals in the building at a time. This is required due to the increase in positive COVID-19 exposure in Allendale County reflected in recent numbers.

Areas marked restricted are not to be entered into by attendees. Do not adjust temperature controls in the building.

The building will close at the designated time indicated by the event, with no exceptions.

You are asked to clean all debris from the community center.

Restrooms

In consideration of the limited capacity of the number of people who occupy the restroom at one time to allow for social distancing.

For additional information regarding rental and use of the Community Center, please contact town hall at (803) 584-4619 or email your questions to

townofallendale@outlook.com.

Public Notice from the Town of Allendale Building Department

Effective November 1, 2020, proper notice will be sent to all property owners (Residential and Commercial) who are in violation of the Town of Allendale Ordinance.

Code Enforcement

Ordinance Summons to address violations of the Town of Allendale Code of Ordinances, including the clearing of vacant lots as authorized by S.C. Code Ann. § 56-7-80.

Section 91.34 of the Town of Allendale Code of Ordinances governs the "Cleaning of Vacant Lots." The Section requires that any owner of a lot be required to maintain the property in a manner that would not cause a nuisance to the public or neighboring properties. If the lot continues to cause a nuisance, the ordinance also vests the Town with the authority to clear the property after giving written notice and charge the property owner with the cost through their annual tax levy as a property tax.

In accordance with S.C. Code Ann. § 56-7-80, § 10.13 of the Town of Allendale Code of Ordinances vests the authority in the Town to issue Uniform Ordinance Summonses in the event a resident of the Town is not in compliance with a local ordinance. The ordinance summonses must also be audited as part of the Town's annual independent audit as required by S.C. Code Ann.§ 56-7-80.
