Normalcy Grants Support

Routine and structure is essential to every child. Even more so for the children in foster care where stability and encouragement is essential for their growth and healing. FARE's goal is to extend the opportunity to participate in activities that promote those characteristics to all foster, adoptive, and kinship families in the state.

  • A child can only receive a grant once every 6 months.
  • Grant requests are capped at $300 and the board reserves the right to not award the whole amount requested based on fund availability and number of requests received so we can better spread our mission further and to more children

  • An invoice or quote from the activity provider MUST be included in your submission to support the amount you are requesting.
  • Grants are reviewed, considered, and awarded on a first come, first served basis and ONLY as funds are available
  • A grant request submission is NOT a guarantee of award.
  • If a grant is approved, it will be paid DIRECTLY to the activity provider. Not the requester and cannot be for reimbursement of fees already paid.
