Adoption Assistance Grants
Adopting can be expensive. CFLM wants to help reduce the financial barriers to adoption through our Adoption Assistance Grant. Review our eligibility requirements below to see if you qualify to apply for funding. If you qualify, scroll down for application instructions.
Our grant cycle is now open! Applications are due by November 15, 2019.
Applications will be reviewed at the close of each deadline. You can download the new grant application below.
After the November grant cycle, our grant program will re-open on March 1, 2020 with an application deadline of June 15, 2020.
Consideration for this grant is given to the following:
Christian couples living in the state of GA
Some applicants living outside the state of GA may be considered if they have lived in the state within the past 5 years. Please inquire about eligibility before completing the application.
Those who have completed their home study through a licensed agent or agency
Those adopting through a licensed child-placing agency
Some private/independent adoptions may be eligible. Please inquire about eligibility before completing an application.
Some adoptions from foster care may be eligible if the couple has been deemed ineligible for Title IV-E Adoption Assistance. Please inquire about eligibility before completing an application.
Step-parent/relative adoptions are not eligible.
Please note that while we will accept applications from families using an adoption facilitator or consultant, we cannot review your application until you are working with a licensed placing agency. In addition, CFLM cannot contribute to expenses paid to any facilitator/consultant. For an explanation of why we discourage the use of facilitators/consultants, read more here.
Those who have invested their own time and money into the adoption process.
