Assistance Programs

Burial Assistance

Eligibility

  • Native residents within Ninilchik tribal boundaries

Tribal Services provides burial assistance to the families of deceased Native residents who lived within tribal boundaries. The funding provided covers the cost of a basic funeral service and minimal amenities. Because this program is only for last case scenarios and not supplementary, it will not cover funds for services that already have been partially paid for by any party or institution, nor will the program reimburse any existing costs paid.

Please note that whether the person’s last residential address was within tribal boundaries or not determines eligibility, regardless of their tribal affiliation or membership.
