When a Tulare County resident passes away and there are no funds for his or her burial, the County of Tulare may be able to help. The Indigent Burial Policy states that the County may provide for the cremation/burial of such persons  and may provide for the maintenance of their graves. 

To receive these County services, the person's entire household must earn less than the federal poverty level. Applications for this service are available in English and Spanish from the Health & Human Service Agency, the TulareWORKs offices, all funeral homes, the Coroner’s Office, and Veterans Services offices.

A social worker reviews the application, and if no responsible party can be found, the County will pay for the burial. Once the application has been approved, the funeral home will have the body cremated. Cremation reduces the body to ashes (these are called cremains). The applicant may pick up the cremains from the County Coroner’s Office. 

Please see the tab at left to view current Non-interred Cremains Records.
