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.

Should a grant be awarded:
Adoption funds may not be used to cover travel costs.
Money is only payable in USD to a licensed US adoption agency or lawyer.
The Foundation does 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 18 month anniversary of the official grant award date, the remaining funds will revert back to Helpusadopt.org.

Domestic Adoption: For domestic adoption, you apply as soon as your home study is complete and your application is ready to be shown to birth parents.
International Adoption: Applicants submit an application after their child has been identified. If the country you are adopting from has an unusually short time period between when you receive the referral, and when you travel, you may apply any time after your home study is completed. In that case, please note this in your application, and state when you expect to receive your referral and when you expect to bring your child(ren) home.
Adoption Through Foster Care: Apply at any time after your home study is complete. Adoptions through foster care are an exception to our placement eligibility requirement.
