Burial/Cremation Assistance

“Workforce Development provides quality services to Bristol Bay residents, promoting individual and family self-sufficiency through employment and educational opportunities, which sustains cultural values, and reflects economic trends of the Bristol Bay Region.”

Burial/Cremation Assistance

Burial, cremation and funeral costs can be very expensive. There are several agencies that offer burial assistance. Services typically include only the direct services related to the needs of the deceased such as casket, cross, funeral home services, freight/transportation for the deceased to be transported to the community to be buried. Each Organization has their own eligibility requirements. DO NOT ASSUME EXPENSES OR SERVICES WILL BE COVERED. Limits are set for specific services and reimbursement for purchase costs made may not be allowed.

The deceased must be tribally enrolled and have resided within the boundaries of the Bristol Bay Region for the past six consecutive months.
