FUNERALS FOR THE INDIGENT

Indigent person” means a person whose income does not exceed one hundred fifty per cent of the federal poverty line, as revised annually by the United States department of health and human services.

The Indigent Burial and Cremation program works with townships and municipalities to reimburse some of the costs of funeral disposition. When a resident is found to fall below the federal poverty line, Ohio law requires that a local government pay for the burial or cremation. https://ohiocapitaljournal.com/2021/01/04/indigent-burial-program-may-see-more-action-amid-opioid-epidemic-covid-19-pandemic/
