INDIGENT BURIAL FUNDS
W.Va. program that bays for funerals for indigent families exhausts funds

Reported by: Associated Press
Friday, June 6, 2014 7:04 AM EDT
BLUEFIELD, W.Va.


A West Virginia program that pays for funerals for indigent families is now out of money.

The state's indigent burial program has exhausted its funds until the new fiscal year, which begins on July 1.

State lawmakers tell the Bluefield Daily Telegraph that it's the second year the money has run out for the program.

The $2.28 million allotted for the program was cut by $50,000 this fiscal year due to state budget cuts.

Officials plan on re-opening the program when the new fiscal year begins. But until then, area lawmakers say they are not for sure how the state will help low-income families pay for burials.
