The Federal Government’s Memorial Grant Program for First Responders will provide a one-time lump sum, tax-free direct maximum payment of $300,000 to the families of first responders who have died as a result of their duties.
On December 21, 2020 a planned expansion to include the families of correctional, parole and probation officers was announced. Eligible families will be able to begin applying in early 2021. More information will be available soon.
