Folx Health is providing 100 microgrants for at least 1 year of free or reduced HRT via Trans Lifeline though their HRT Care Fund. The application opens quarterly, and the next application opening is June 1st.
Lack of access to trans health care and medical discrimination deeply impact our community, and we are honored to do the work of processing HRT microgrants to support 100 of our trans siblings in getting that necessary care this year.
Microgrants’ mission is to alleviate financial barriers for trans folks through economic redistribution strategies. We believe that free, trans-inclusive universal health care is necessary to close the gap of access to trans care, rather than self-pay models. When it’s not possible to change the cost of care directly, we provide resources to buffer the impact of those costs.
Our hope is that this collaboration influences how companies do business by shifting funds from for-profit corporations directly to trans people, with racial equity and mutual aid at the forefront.
