Helpusadopt.org grant

Helpusadopt.org is a national 501(c)(3) financial grant program that helps couples and individuals (regardless of race, religion, gender, ethnicity, marital status or sexual orientation) with the cost of their adoptions by awarding grants of up to $15,000. These grants are payable to the recipient's licensed adoption agency or lawyer for outstanding or future expenses. Helpusadopt.org grants are intended for recipients who have financial need.

Our application and the required supplemental materials can now be submitted online. We ask that you submit an online application; we have limited resources, and the time saved by processing digital applications helps us concentrate our efforts on expanding our grant program. Alternatively, you may print out the application and mail it to us. Please note that if you are submitting your application online, you will be able to save and return to the form later. It will be deleted from our system if you do not access it for 6 months. Applications will be reopened for resubmission after the grant award deadline.

When during the adoption process should you apply for a grant?

Domestic Adoption

We recommend that for a 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

We recommend that 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.

Foster-to-Adopt

We recommend you apply at any time after your home study is complete. Adoptions through foster care are an exception to our placement eligibility requirement.


elpusadopt.org accepts applications from couples and individuals regardless of race, religion, gender, ethnicity, marital status or sexual orientation. Please note the following criteria:
  • 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 assistanceThere 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.
