In 1991, TTC and the Foundation established the Minigrant Program to provide funds to faculty and staff for equipment, materials and special resources to enhance the learning experience of TTC students.


The TTC grants office assists faculty and staff in obtaining grant funding to advance the strategic goals of the College. Grant funds support a variety of needs at TTC, ranging from equipment to curriculum enhancement to development of new programs.
