TJFP is a community-led funding initiative founded in 2012 to support grassroots, trans justice groups run by and for trans people. We make grants annually by bringing together a panel of six trans justice activists from around the country to carefully review every application we receive.
Go to www.transjusticefundingproject.org/apply to apply online.
Is Your Group Eligible for a TJFP Grant?
Are you a grassroots, trans justice group run by and for trans people?
Is your group’s total budget less than $250,000?
Are you located in the United States or any of the U.S. territories?
Are you centering the leadership of trans people organizing around their experiences with racism, economic injustice, transmisogyny, ableism, immigration, incarceration, and other intersecting oppressions?
Are you meeting the needs of different local communities and using organizing and/or providing services to help bring people together?
Do you see your work as part of a bigger picture of trans-led work that seeks dignity and justice for all people?
TJFP does not fund individuals.
You do not need to be a 501c3 non-profit or have a fiscal sponsor to apply!
The deadline to apply is February 15th, 2021 by midnight Eastern Standard Time. Decisions will be made at the end of May 2021, so you can expect to hear back from us by early June 2021.
Translation & Accessibility
The application is currently available in English and Spanish. But please email us at [email protected] by January 15th if you need a translated version in another language or an audio version of the application.
We aim to make this process as accessible as possible, so please let us know about any other needs you have and we will do our best to meet them.
A Few Frequently Asked Questions
Can you apply if your fiscal sponsor’s budget is more than $250,000?
Yes, as long as your own independent group’s budget is less than $250,000.
Can you apply if your organization has a trans justice program with a budget of less than $250,000 but the organization’s total budget is more than that?
No. We do not fund programs at larger organizations. We fund independent trans-led groups.
Can you apply again if you received a grant from TJFP before?
Yes! You might want to share how you used your grant this year in your application. But you don’t have to—we do not require reporting.
