Grants of $500 to Texas public school teachers for programs to enhance the quality of classroom education. Funding may be requested by individual teachers or groups for events, programs, and other learning platforms that enhance public education for children within the State.

Today’s classroom teachers use a variety of tools to educate children, but due to lack of sufficient funding, many find new technology items out of reach. TRTF’s Classroom Assistance Grant program helps teachers improve the learning environment for students by giving $500 towards projects, learning platforms, software, and much more. This grant program helps students develop real-world skills and provides them with hands-on skills.
