Adoption Grant and Loan Program

Our Adoption Grant and Loan Program is open to Christian Families living in Texas who are adopting Waiting Children – older children, those with special or medical needs, and/or sibling groups. (see our Statement of Faith)

Don’t forget to check out the Federal Adoption Texas Credit to see if you’re eligible to take advantage of $13,570 in tax credits available to adoptive families! Visit the Interactive Tax Assistant to see if you qualify.
