Adoption United States: Helpusadopt.org announces Grant Program

HelpUsAdopt.org, founded in 2007, is a national 501(c)(3) adoption grant program and raises funds primarily through private donations and fundraising events in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago. Donors to Helpusadopt.org are caring people who simply want to help build happy families for every child.

At least one applicant must be a US citizen
Must have a completed, approved, and current home study
Must not be pregnant, trying to conceive, or pursuing infertility treatments simultaneously with your adoption
Must demonstrate significant financial obstacles and the need for financial assistance. There is a distinction between “not wanting” to write the check(s) and “not being able to”.
If the adoption has been finalized, or the child has been placed in your home, you are no longer eligible (exceptions made for adoptions through foster care).
Applicants must exhibit a commitment to adoption, and will continue with the adoption regardless of whether or not they obtain a grant from Helpusadopt.org
Applicants must be associated with a licensed adoption agency or attorney. If you are working with a consultant, final payments must be made to a lawyer or agency.
Priority will be given to applicants without children and those with failed or disrupted adoption placements.
Should a grant be awarded:
Adoption funds may not be used to cover travel cost.
Money is only payable in USD to a licensed US adoption agency or lawyer.
They do not cover agency start-up fees, funds should be applied towards the finalization of your adoption.
If any portion of the grant is unused upon completion of the adoption process, or upon the expiration of the award (approximately 24 months from the official grant award date), the remaining funds will revert back to Helpusadopt.org.
