The Wisconsin Funeral and Cemetery Aids Program (WFCAP) is a voluntary assistance program for service providers who offer funeral, cemetery, and cremation services to certain decedents (reference Section 1.3 Potentially Eligible Decedents), and whose services are not fully compensated by the decedent’s estate, family, or other resources. WFCAP is the payer of last resort. Therefore, service providers are required to make a reasonable effort to exhaust all other funding sources before submitting a WFCAP Application. Other funding sources include, but are not limited to: burial trusts, burial insurance, estate assets, and fundraisers.
On May 2, DHS updated the WFCAP manual, application, and other forms. In addition, DHS released a new payment summary form and informational family brochure.
Funeral home, cemetery, and crematorium staff can read the WFCAP Update for more details.
