Making Adoption Affordable

Adoption Grants and Loans

There are a number of resources available to families pursuing adoption. There are privately funded organizations who seek to help make adoption financially viable for parents who have the hearts and willingness to open their homes to a child. They do this by offering grants and low or no interest loans to help cover the costs of adoption. Learn more by visiting the following websites:

Adoption Tax Credit

Families who adopt a child can claim a federal adoption tax credit without needing to incur or document expenses. For the latest information on the credit, go to the NACAC tax credit page at www.nacac.org.

Employer Benefits

Check with your Human Resources; department some employers offer a reimbursement amount to parents who adopt. These reimbursements can range up to $10,000.
