Flathead County Policy for Veteran allowance for Burial and Headstone placement:
MCA 10-2-501 indicates that counties are required to pay an allowance not to exceed $500 to defer the interment expenses for a veteran resident in the county and an amount not to exceed $100 toward the placement of a suitable headstone.

On June 13, 2011, the Flathead County Board of Commissioners adopted resolution number 2296 increasing the maximum reimbursement allowance to $500 and $100 respectively for qualified veterans that are considered residents of Flathead County.
