Grant Resources

Reece’s Rainbow is an excellent resource for your special needs adoption fundraising efforts, but there are MANY other grant funds and organizations out there who provide grant funding for our families.  Some are income-based, some are Christian-based, and some have other criteria.  Below is a list of grant agencies we are aware of.  It is not a complete list by any means.  If you know of one not listed here, please share it with me so I can post it for others.  And remember, families can be eligible for and receive multiple grants!!  Apply everywhere! (once your home study is complete and approved)
