To be considered for an adoption grant from Katelyn’s Fund, families must submit an application and, if chosen, participate in an interview. If the family lives within 120 miles of Sioux Center, IA, the interview will happen in person. But if the applicant lives farther, interview will be done via Skype.
The application and interview will occur:
- WITHIN 45 days of child being placed in your home for all domestic placements
- BEFORE final travel for all international placements
Please be aware that the application process could take 2-3 months. We suggest applying as soon as you have an approved home study.
Due to the sheer number of applicants, we are not able to respond to inquiries about the status of your application or about checking items needed.
The number of requests far outweigh the number of resources we have available. We give higher priority to families who make less than $100,000 as we have so many applicants.
It is the responsibility of the applicants to make sure all materials are included with the application and on the application checklist. We will not process any files that are missing items. Files that are incomplete will not be reviewed.
