Who qualifies for the County Low Income Assistance Cremation Program?
A resident of Nevada County who does not have any relatives or sufficient resources to pay for standard cremation/funeral expenses is a likely candidate. This program is administered through the Public Administrator as part of the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, and is a reimbursement program. There is still a cost, though significantly reduced, to a qualified applicant. For more information please call 530-265-1471.
