Cloth diapering program for low income

I was wondering if anyone knew of a program that lends cloth diapers to low income families? My cousin is switching to cloth because she is in desperate need to save money. I remember a couple years ago that another cloth diapering friend of mine told me about this program that lends cloth diapers to lower income families. I was wondering if this program still existed and how do I go about signing up my cousin for it?

I am also starting a nonprofit that sells cloth diapers and diaper sewing supplies, and uses the profits to loan and gift cloth diapers to people in need. I just can't post in the WAHM section yet because I have 4, not 5, positive feedbacks. Feel free to PM me for more info.

Also, she may want to check with local diaper stores. Many do a program too. Like for WIC holders we lend them a stash and they can keep exchanging them up for a bigger size. We can only do it for locals tho - but I know there are other stores who do the same thing.

Unfortunately where we live the only places that sell cloth diapers near is babiesrus, target, and walmart. When I bought my stash I bought everything from online sellers. But thank you for the information

How old/what size is/are her kid(s)? If they would fit anything I'm not using, I could send some FFS. Many mamas helped us by giving us diapers when we were in the hardest of spots. I would love to be able to do the same for someone else
