Adoption Grants

Several Options for Adoptive Parents

What Options Do I have with Adoption Grants?


Adoption grants and low interest loans can help adoptive parents with the cost of international adoption

There are several adoption grant and loan options that are available for adoptive parents pursuing international adoption. 

We are happy to share some of them with you below.  These organizations are third parties to us, and they operate separately from our agency.

With most grants, you would need to have a completed home study which approves you as an adoptive parent.

MILITARY Adoption Reimbursement

Federal law authorizes reimbursement for certain expenses associated with adoption to a maximum of $2000 per child and not to exceed $5000 per calendar year. In order to qualify for the reimbursement, service members must be serving on continuous active duty for at least 180 days and the adoption must be finalized while on active duty. In addition, the claim must be submitted while on active duty and within the timeframe specified in DoD Instruction 1341.09 (within two years of the date that the adoption was finalized for claims submitted on and after July 5, 2016; within one year for claims submitted prior to that date).
