Financial Assistance
 
OUR GRANT PROGRAM IS CURRENTLY CLOSED.
IF YOU DOWNLOADED AN APPLICATION PRIOR TO 15 JUNE, YOU CAN STILL SUBMIT IT FOR CONSIDERATION.

We encourage you to submit your application electronically. This saves postage and gives you a little extra time to submit, if necessary.  Simply scan all pages, including recommendation letters and photographs, into a SINGLE .pdf  document and e-mail to director@seaoffaces.org.  If you need to mail your application, please send them to 19615 W. Top O The Moor Dr, Monument, CO  80132.

       Sea of Faces is honored to assist Christian families on their journey of adoption.  In order to be good stewards of the finances we've been given, applicants must meet the below criteria to be considered for a grant:
 

1. You are legal residents of the United States
2. You have a referral for a child from a developing country*
3. You have a completed home study
4. You have an approved I-171H or I-797C
5. You are a married couple, one man and one woman
6. Both individuals are professing Christians 

      * This includes families that must first travel before accepting a specific child.  Keep in mind that Sea of Faces allows families to apply up to six months after a child is home, so even if travel occurs quickly after receiving a referral, you are still eligible to apply.

      Some additional factors we consider when evaluating packages include urgency of need, church involvement, overall financial stewardship, adoption impact on your financial future and your adoption story.  We also ask you sign our Statement of Faith, which can be previewed here.  You may only apply once per each adoption.  Please evaluate and time your submission accordingly. 

     Grant Schedule:  Pending available funding, grants will be awarded during the months of March, June, September and December.  To ensure your information is as up to date as possible, please follow the guidelines below when completing and submitting your application.
  Applications must be received, not post marked, by the last day of each quarter.  Recipients are notified within six weeks following the close of each quarter.
