PROGRAM UPDATE

Due to the volume of recent applications, our assistance program is currently not accepting any applications. Don't fret! This is temporary and we will be available to help you as soon as our waitlist reduces. Until then, here's some things you can do to still get assistance or help us move faster:

  • How can you help us process you faster? We need volunteers! If you know someone that wants to be apart of our team, please have them follow this link to our Volunteer page and fill out an application for Advocate. The more volunteers we have, the faster we can process members of our community!

Below is a form to sign up for when our application becomes available again. We hope to have it re-open by the end of the summer!

IDENTIFICATION ASSISTANCE

Follow our links below to our applications for services. Please make sure you fill out the correct information so we can reach you when your application is processed. Due to the high volume of requests, the wait time for services 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. If you have a question or like to check on the status of your application, please reach us at contact@transassistance.org

Once your application has been processed, you will be contacted by one of our advocates who will work with you to come up with an assistance plan. Our program 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. We will never turn anyone away from our services, and never ask you to submit income or receipts. 

We can currently offer financial assistance on the following documents:

  • Name Change Petitions
  • Driver's License or State Identification
  • Passports
  • Immigration Documents

We currently are unable to provide assistance for Birth Certificates at this time. For more information or questions about other documents, please email us at contact@transassistance.org.
