Before applying, it is important to check for grant eligibility criteria and application deadlines. Most grant organizations accept applications after the family has an approved homestudy and will administer funds directly to the family’s service provider.
$500,000 in Adoption Grants Available
In November 2021, Holt entered into a partnership with Gift of Adoption to reduce financial barriers to adoption for qualified families yearning to adopt vulnerable children. The partnership celebrates each organization’s child-centered belief that every child deserves a permanent and loving home. (Approved Holt families only.)

Holt’s Special Needs Adoption Fund
For any child growing up in an orphanage, the love and nurturing care of a family can never come soon enough. But for children with special needs, their health — even their life — may depend on it. Since 1994, more than 600 families have received a grant through Holt’s Special Needs Adoption Fund (SNAF) to help them adopt a child with special needs. These funds are available to families in the Holt adoption process who demonstrate need, and are not designated for a specific child. (Read the story of how one mom used a SNAF grant to help adopt her daughter!)
For more information about SNAF and to see whether you qualify, please contact your adoption program team at Holt.
