The Trans Justice Funding Project (TJFP) is seeking applications for its grant program to support trans-led groups with budgets of under $250,000 in the United States.

The term “trans” in its most inclusive sense, as an umbrella term encompassing transsexual, transgender, genderqueer, Two-Spirit people, and more generally, anyone whose gender identity or gender expression is non-conforming and/or different from their birth-assigned sex.

TJFP see trans justice as a commitment to creating a world where trans and gender non-conforming individuals and communities have the freedom to self-define and express their genders without fear of violence, discrimination, or harassment. A world where we recognize and honor communities have knowledge and expertise in matters relating to their own lives that no one else will have.
