Adoption Grants

Please see the Fund Your Adoption website for a list of grants


Grants are your best source for financial aid because you do not have to repay them.

There is usually an application process, sometimes simple and sometimes more in-depth, but always worth the while.

However, finding adoption grants can be a frustrating process. Many quit searching. Others may find a grant, but only after filling out the third page of the application do they discover that they don’t even qualify for the grant. Feeling defeated, they give up.

The Adoption Finance Toolkit from — ONE service where you can find out which adoption grants you qualify for.
