The Burial Assistance Program for the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes was created to provide financial assistance in meeting the nessecary burial expenses for enrolled members of the Tribe. All tribal members whose name appears on the roll and all those eligible for membership with the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes at the time of their deathwill be eligible. Applications for assistance must be filed within ninety (90) days following the decedent's death by the next of kin or other person responsible for burial arrangements. The application must provide information on the decedent. A certified death certificate and a copy of the signed bill from the funeral home must be provided. Guidelines will be reviewed on an annual basis and the Wichita Executive Committee will make adjustments, as deemed necessary, to the actual amount of payment.
