HRT Supply Program

We believe the access to HRT can reduce harm in our community to those who seek this type of transition method. We understand that getting supplies is often the difference between taking your shot and not and want to help alleviate some of that stress, we now offer a two month supply of HRT supplies to anyone who cannot afford or access them; supplies include needles, syringes, sharps shuttles, and alcohol wipes. Every kit includes a link to the individuals nearest disposal site as well.

Name Aid Program

We believe the ability to change one’s name is a right, not a privilege. Trans and gender diverse individuals face many obstacles while transitioning, the ability to pay for their name change should not be one. We have created a program to pay for all aspects of the individuals name change. We want to help make this process a celebration again.

Thanks to the passage of HB1961 all court associated fees will now be covered for those who qualify for low income assistance starting July 1. Due to this we will be ending our Name Aid program on May 31st and replacing it with our Microgrant program. If you still need assistance with name change financial aid after May 31st you can then apply for our Microgrant program, if you have general questions about name changes email skye@diversityallianceofthepugetsound.org

Microgrant Program

We believe that Transitioning comes in many forms including self, social, legal, and medical; how one person transitions may be totally different than someone else and meeting the needs of our community should reflect this. Not all Trans and Gender Diverse individuals go through Legal and Medical transitions, but they deserve assistance and support for their transitions as well, and those who do go through those transitions deserve assistance past help with name changes and surgery. It is due to this that we have developed our Microgrant Program.

Our Microgrants will assist Trans and Gender Diverse individuals in paying for needs often not met by other financial need programs. This may include; gender affirming clothing, HRT, transportation to appointments, therapy or other gender-confirming appointments, school, and prosthetics.

A specific number of grantees will be chosen per month to be awarded grants, the amount is set based on the pot collected by donations both for the specific program and the organization at large.

THIS PROGRAM WILL BE ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS 6/1/22
