SRLP is responding to the urgent needs of our community during this unprecedented moment by establishing a micro-grants committee to address systemic barriers for the survival and self-determination of our community. Community members are invited to click on the links below to apply:
- Financial Relief for Self-Determination – providing one-time financial assistance (check or paypal)
- Technologies for Leadership Development – providing laptops and technological education
- Technologies for Digital Divide – providing cell phones to keep our community members connected and safe
- Prisoner Advisory Committee Commissary for COVID-19 relief
Microgrant applications are now open and will close Wednesday, July 8. The SRLP micro-grants committee prioritizes SRLP members, but aims to reserve 20% of funds for TGNCI people of color and low-income TGNCI people who are core community members per our mission statement and plan to become active members.
The micro-grants are new developments for SRLP in envisioning ways to keep supporting, uplifting and addressing needs for our people, by our people.
Grassroots fundraising—individual contributions from our supporters—allow us the flexibility to move resources directly to our membership: transgender, gender non-conforming, and intersex people of color and low-income TGNCI people.
In June 2020, we are calling on our community to help us raise funds to sustain this micro-grants program. If we can reach our goal, we will be able to continue to provide microgrants to SRLP members through the summer, and, hopefully, beyond!
