Our grants are only offered to homeschooling families. To be eligible, the parent or legal guardian should:

  • be privately funding their homeschool program (as opposed to it being paid for by public funds);
  • conduct the majority of the schooling at home (as opposed to a daily drop-off co-op); and
  • have the authority to choose their child’s studies (as opposed to having the curriculum chosen by a school).
HSLDA is an advocacy organization committed to making homeschooling possible. We defend homeschool freedom, provide legal protection to homeschool families, offer grants to homeschool families who are facing hard times, and provide educational resources and support for homeschoolers.

If your family needs immediate assistance, we suggest that you expedite your membership application with the $40 rush fee. You will receive an initial contact about your legal situation within 1 business day. Because processing a rush application requires the immediate diversion of HSLDA resources, the $40 fee is nonrefundable. 

Legal assistance for your current situation is not guaranteed. Be sure to include details about your situation in your application and be prepared to submit copies of relevant documentation (letters, court documents, etc.). 

If we cannot assist you, you will have the option to withdraw your application and receive a refund of your membership dues (minus any rush fee).
