Due to limited funding, we regret that we are not always able to provide assistance to every qualified family. Therefore, we encourage you to seek additional sources of funding assistance.
If Your Grant Application Is Declined
You will be given the reason(s) why in writing.
Because we receive more applications than we can fund, it is not uncommon for the reason to be that we do not have enough funds to award every grant that meets our funding criteria.
Your application fee entitles you to have your application presented for a decision a second time as long as the adoption is not yet finalized and there remains an outstanding balance due towards the adoption expenses.
