Most experts agree that one of the principal barriers to adoption is the expense. The National Adoption Foundation offers financial aid to families to help offset expenses directly associated with the adoption process and the formation of families.
Families can apply for outright grants from the Foundation. The grant program is open to all legal adoptions including public or private agency adoptions, international, special needs or adoptions facilitated by an attorney. There is no income requirement. There is a simple one page application and the only requirement to apply is a home study, or one in progress. The Foundation’s board meets four times a year, during the last week of each quarter, to award adoption grants.
