AB 2218 (Santiago)


Establishes the Transgender Wellness and Equity Fund under the administration of the Office of Health Equity in the State Department of Public Health for grants to Trans-led organizations and hospitals, health care clinics, and other medical providers that provide gender-conforming health care services and have an established partnership with a Trans-led organization, to create, or fund existing, programs focused on coordinating trans-inclusive health care, as defined, for people that identify as transgender, gender non-conforming, or intersex. The bill would appropriate $15,000,000 from the General Fund to the Transgender Wellness and Equity Fund, established pursuant to this bill, for these purposes.
