Burial Assistance

When eligible tribal families who have lost a loved one lack the means to provide a memorial, APIA’s Burial Assistance program may be able to help.

The Burial Assistance program is currently out of funding.


We know this is a difficult time for any family. Please be prepared that program staff will need to review your loved-one’s information, including:

  • Proof of Native blood
  • Photo ID
  • Proof of residency in the service area
  • Time of death
  • Documentation proving the lack of resources
