Help with Body Dysphoria

We understand the importance of being able to present in the gender with which you identify.  Doing so improves your confidence and is a matter of safety and mental health.

We offer grants for the purchase of body-safe FTM Packers, FTM Binders, MTF Breast Forms and MTF Gaffs. We offer this service so that transgender men and transgender women can be confident in their presentation.

We also know that building a new wardrobe that supports you as you transition can be expensive as well. That’s why we offer the opportunity to for transgender people to apply for a grant that will allow them to purchase clothing that matches their true gender.

  • Each year Eastern PA Trans Equity Project offers a limited number of monetary grants to transgender people for the purchase of gender affirming prostheses or garments. 
  • Grants may cover the full or partial costs associated purchasing transition apparel, prostheses, or clothing.
  • Applicants must be able to demonstrate financial need.
  • Grants are available to residents of Lehigh, Northampton, Bucks, Berks, Monroe, Montgomery, Luzerne, Lackawanna, Carbon and Schuylkill Counties only.

If you are an unemployed trans woman and need assistance with an outfit for job interviews we can also refer you to The Perfect Fit for Working Women. Qualified applicants to this program receive:

Are You Unemployed?

  • One Free outfit that is appropriate for a job interview
  • Upon successfully landing a job you will receive a week’s worth of clothing suitable for your new employment.
  • Workforce preparation training is also available
