Before 16 Grant Application
Disclaimer:  We desire to assist in the funding for every family the requests a grant.  The funds are dependent on creating an account with the hosting organization, filling out an application, and passing a background check.  In the event that a grant is awarded, the grant funds will be sent directly to the hosting organization and assigned to your account on the back end of the financial commitment.  Before 16 will confirm with the hosting organization the host child selection to ensure there are no irregularities or special concerns.  Special concerns include (but are not limited to), the child's availability for adoption, behavioral risks, dynamics that might create dysfunction in the host family, or circumstances that might inhibit a child from making the trip.
