Getting a grant is not an automatic or easy process, as each foundation has their own requirements based on financial need, infertility, religion, background, marital status and age etc. for the reward. Many of our families have researched this on the internet, made applications to the foundations that fit their circumstances, and then have had their adoptions subsidized by these wonderful benefactors. We hope that it works for you as well! The National Adoption Foundation: National Adoption Program makes quarterly grants ranging from $500 to $4,000 to adopting parents.
