There is a bit more support for the sorrow.
Greater assistance is being provided by the city to aid families in need who are grappling with the loss of loved ones in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.
The administration has increased the amount of financial assistance it will provide to bury deceased loved ones and is also offering the aid to undocumented immigrants for the first time.
Although a burial assistance grant has been offered by New York City for many years, the pandemic has spurred the de Blasio administration to expand the program, city officials said during a video call with members of the community and ethnic media on May 14.
The amount of assistance has been increased to $1,700 during the pandemic, up from $900 previously.
