What we can currently offer:

  • Funds for Identity Document Changes
  • Support for Undocumented Individuals
  • Support for Incarcerated Individuals

What to expect:

You will be contacted by one of our advocates who will work with you to come up with an assistance plan. TAP was started by and is run by trans folks and we pledge to avoid gatekeeping. Therefore, we are using an informed consent process based on mutual trust and care for our community.

Currently, the wait time from the time you sign up for assistance is roughly three to four months, but as we bring on new advocates and streamline our system, that wait time will drop. If you have signed up for assistance, we assure you that we have not forgotten about you, and we are processing requests as fast as possible. 

We understand that not everyone has access to the internet, therefore, the following form may be filled out by or on behalf of those that are seeking assistance. 

So that we might best be able to assist you, please let us know which of the following apply to you:
