Burial Assistance

Burial Assistance

HRA's Office of Burial Services (OBS) can provide financial assistance to help you meet the funeral expenses for a deceased low-income New York City resident. This can include funeral expenses that have already been paid as well as pre-approval for the cost of a planned funeral. Financial assistance may be available for costs associated with the reburial or cremation of low income decedents after disinterment from Hart Island.
