About South Florida Trans Pride Grants
These grants were made available from proceeds generated by the first annual South Florida Trans Pride held in February 2018 during Pride Fort Lauderdale. Up to five grants are available and these grants are designated for non-profit organizations that specifically serve the South Florida transgender community. Applicants should provide a description of the services provided and benefits to the Transgender community in their applications. Questions can be directed to grants@pridefortlauderdale.org.

Please note: Both categories of grants may be applied for using the same form below. Applications from organizations serving the Trans community may also be considered for Pride Fort Lauderdale Community Grants, although an organization may only be awarded one grant in any calendar year.
