Application Guidelines

We wish we could help all who need assistance in our community, but due to limited resources we have established the following framework for determining eligibility:

Grants are awarded on a first come first served basis for eligible applicants. We are currently awarding grants to two families per month. Please inquire before applying if we still have available grants for your due date month by emailing us at


Priority is given to women who are not receiving any paid leave, but if we do not receive two applications of that nature in any given month, we will award a grant to someone receiving minimal paid leave. Qualified applicants are eligible for a grant of $1,000.


Priority will be given to applicants who earn an annual gross family income of $85,000 or less for a family of four, with an additional $12,000 for each subsequent child (e.g. $97,000 for family of five, $112,000 for family of six, etc.).

You may apply on the first day of the month, up to two months prior to your due date month (e.g. July 1st for an August or September due date).

You must provide the following:

-proof of pregnancy (ultrasound, letter from OBGYN/midwife, visit summary)

-proof of income (pay stubs, tax return if self-employed)

-proof of spouse's income (pay stubs, tax return if self-employed)

-letter (or copy of an email) from your employer detailing any paid time off you are/are not receiving, or proof of self-employment

Incomplete applications will not be considered. In the event of technical difficulties, please email attachments to

Adoptive families are also eligible! Please email us if you are adopting for adapted application instructions. 


A phone interview and/or rabbinic reference may be deemed necessary to determine eligibility.

Thank you and good luck! We wish you a smooth, calm, peaceful birth and transition for you and your growing family.
