PCCC Funeral Assistance - First Nations Funeral Fund Service
First Nations Funeral Assistance Program
The Trust understands it can be a very difficult time when a family member passes away and has developed the Funeral Assistance Program to help our mob at this time. Assistance has been made available for Traditional Owners of the Claim Group up to a maximum of $2,000 as a contribution toward funding funeral expenses.
For more information about eligibility and how to apply, download our Funeral Assistance Application form here (PDF)
This funeral fund program remains open at all times and we encourage family members to contact the office if they have any questions about the program. We also acknowledge that the assistance provided by the Trust may not always cover all expenses associated with funerals so we have included some links below to other programs that may provide assistance.
Other funeral assistance or fund programs
Queensland Government Funeral Assistance
When you cannot afford a funeral for a friend or relative who passed away in Queensland and their assets will not cover their funeral costs, you may be able to get funeral assistance through The Department of Justice & Attorney General. This program is not a grant and does require funds to be paid back via a payment plan with the Department.
