Qualification for our program requires a total household income at or below our financial guidelines as listed at www.smileschangelives.org/financial. Please note: It is YOUR responsibility to determine if you meet these financial qualifications before applying. Your application will be denied and your fee will NOT be refunded if your income does not qualify. [Foster parents or agencies that are applying for a child do not need to submit proof of income. Learn more]
You MUST submit a copy of the most recent year’s Federal Tax Form 1040, 1040A or Supplemental Security Income award letter as proof of income (note: we do not accept Social Security benefits letters as proof of income). If you do not file Form 1040 or 1040A or receive Supplement Security Income benefits, your application will NOT be approved. We DO NOT accept any other type of proof of income. Tax forms/SSI awards letters that are altered in any way, including removing/blacking out Social Security numbers, will NOT be accepted. If you are submitting applications for more than one child, you MUST include a copy of your tax form/SSI awards letter with EACH application.
If submitting Form 1040/1040A, please note:
