Eastern PA Trans Equity Project beleives that transgender people deserve to have a roof over their heads.
If you have a job but cannot afford a security deposit for an appartment we may be able to help. If you have secured an apartment and have a job that will allow you to pay your rent (but need security) you can apply for a housing grant where EPTEP will pay your landlord directly for this cost. You must have secured an apartment and EPTEP will need to speak to the landlord. Maximum grant is $1,500.
If you have lost housing and need temporary lodging, EPTEP will provide qualified applicants with up to $250 toward the cost of a hotel room. Payment will be made directly to the hotel of EPTEP’s choice.
EPTEP reserves the right to decline or approve any application
