The Therapy Access Project provides mini-grants to help Black queer and trans folks in Pennsylvania and New Jersey access individual and group therapy services. One initiative of the Access Project provides financial support for up to 5 sessions of individual therapy (up to $100 per session) or up to 6 sessions of group therapy (up to $50 per session). 

In order to apply, applicants will need to:

  1. Identify as a Black Queer and/or Trans Person,
  2. Live in the states of Pennsylvania or New Jersey,
    • 50% of mini-grants are allocated to applicants residing in the Philadelphia Metro Area
  3. Have or find a therapist who agrees to participate in this program, and
  4. Require financial assistance to pay for mental health therapy
The Free Letter Writing Project provides mini-grants to help Black trans folks in PA & NJ access to life-saving gender-affirming surgery and hormone assessments and letters from providers in the local community at no cost.


This is our very first official grant cycle and we'd love your support in helping us to connect with folks who may benefit from our initiatives! 

Thank you for continuing to support us!
