The Texas Retired Teachers Foundation (TRTF) Board of Trustees met on Thursday, June 30, 2017 and voted to expand two of its most renown charitable programs.
Since 2008, TRTF has supported the Classroom Assistance Grant program, providing monetary assistance to Texas public school teachers for innovative projects and learning initiatives. In 2017, TRTF awarded 15 $500 grants to Texas school teachers.
In 2018, TRTF will double the amount of awards given through this vital program, providing 30 $500 grants to Texas school teachers!
