State of Oregon: Adoption – Adoption and Guardianship …

The Adoption Assistance and Guardianship Assistance Programs are federal- and state-funded programs that may include medical assistance, reimbursement for costs incurred to legally finalize the adoption/guardianship or financial assistance paid on behalf of an eligible child to an adoptive parent or guardian.

Note: Nonrecurring costs are those expenses directly related to legally finalizing the adoption or guardianship, such as attorney legal fees, court costs and pre-placement visits. A maximum of $2,000 per child is allowed. Receipts for costs must be received and a signed agreement in place before the adoption or guardianship is finalized. The expenses will be reimbursed after finalization.

Once determined eligible for adoption/guardianship assistance, your caseworker will discuss your childs needs and review your family circumstances in order to assist you with completing the application for adoption/guardianship assistance. Your request for adoption/guardianship assistance is based on your current out of pocket expenses incurred to meet your childs needs. Specific expenses must be listed on the application form. Things to consider when requesting adoption/guardianship assistance benefits:

There are federal, state and program requirements that restrict and define the Adoption Assistance and Guardianship Assistance Programs. Within those guidelines, the adoption/guardianship assistance coordinator works with each family to help offset out-of-pocket expenses incurred to incorporate the special needs child into the family.

Local child welfare office:

Adoptive parents and guardians may be eligible for Family Support Services through their local child welfare office when a goal-oriented, time-limited, individualized plan for the child and the child's family is needed to identify and address the child's needs and service goals in order to acheive safety and well being.
