Point of Pride Launches COVID-19 Emergency Fund for Trans Folks in Financial Need
COVID-19 Emergency Fund: Microgrants for trans folks towards gender-affirming health necessities
Since our founding in 2016, Point of Pride’s mission has been to respond to the needs of our trans community and provide life-changing, gender-affirming support to those in need of it. In response to COVID-19 and the unexpected costs and hardships our trans community now faces, we’ve launched the COVID-19 Emergency Fund to provide immediate, short-term relief.
This program provides microgrants to transgender recipients who have lost employment and lack the financial means to cover expenses related to their health and well-being, such as hormone replacement therapy (HRT), mental health services, and medical supplies.
