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 may pay your landlord directly for this cost. If you are in permanent housing (not a hotel) and need assistance to make your rent you may also apply for a one-time grant. In either case EPTEP will need to speak to the landlord and will need to see a copy of your leasing agreement. Maximum grant is $1,500. In all cases payment is made directly to the landlord.
EPTEP reserves the right to decline or approve any application.
Applicant must identify as transgender or be the parent of a minor transgender child to apply.
Applicants must reside in Lehigh, Northampton, Monroe, Montgomery, Berks, Bucks, Luzerne, Lackawanna, Carbon, or Schuylkill County in Pennsylvania. Applications from other localities will be declined.
