The program explicitly sets quotas based on race and sexual identity, prioritizing black and Latinx transgender women with statements like, “The program enrollment will ensure the 55 participants is 66% BIPOC, at least 30% Black Trans Women, and at least 20% Latinx Trans Women.”

The records obtained by Judicial Watch showed that the taxpayer-funded “Guaranteed Income for Trans People” (GIFT) program also allowed illegal aliens and people who “engage in survival sex trades” to apply.

One thing that was not found in the records was any restrictions for the intended use of the funds. It’s not just unrestricted money being provided, either. 

Health Services Are Also Included
