Associates Home Loan is proud to offer a new grant focusing on something near and dear to our heart: adoption.
The $1,000 Associates Home Loan Adoption Grant was created in 2020 to assist those who are wanting to adopt but may need financial assistance in the process. We believe individuals and families who are willing to open up their homes to adoptive children are worth recognizing. With that said, we understand that the adoption process can be costly. Our hope is our grant can be a source of support to supplement the cost of giving a child a loving, permanent family.
For more information on the application process and requirements, please see below.
Apply through the below form field, and also submit your Homestudy.
A recipient will be selected twice a year. The next deadline is December 31st, 2023.
The selected individual/family to receive the grant will be contacted and will have two weeks to confirm their adoption agency and adoption process status.
A check will be mailed directly to the recipient’s agency to be used towards adoption expenses.
Applicants must be home-studied approved.
Money is only payable in USD to a US adoption agency. The grant money will be mailed directly to your agency of choice.
Two recipients a year will be selected. The first deadline is on December 31st. The second deadline is June 30th. The chosen individual/family to receive the grant must respond within two weeks to confirm their adoption agency and contact information. If Associates Home Loan does not receive a response within two weeks, another recipient will be selected.
We accept applications from anyone adopting, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, religion, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.

“We know that having grant assistance for the adoption process will mean being able to provide these children with future opportunities for exploration, education, and support services when they are home with us.
Although we have never been parents, we knew this was the right choice for us and cannot wait to welcome children into our home. With your gift, this [is] a possibility.” – Preneat Wu

Ram and Anjali chose to adopt in August of 2020. Anjali is a special education teacher, and Ram is the favorite uncle and godparent to a whole crew of nieces and nephews.
They knew they wanted to adopt before they got married. After multiple pregnancy losses, they decided that adoption was the right path for them. Even through the heartache they have faced, they always held adoption as a light of hope in their hearts.
