Community Development Initiative and Project Assistance Grant
In 2009 TCT committed to further serve their members through the TCT Community Development Initiative. The initiative was designed to help promote healthy lifestyles for current members and businesses, and to help support infrastructures that will attract new residents and businesses to TCT service areas.
TCT helps member communities by providing assistance in leadership, training, grant procurement, and business development, for both new and existing businesses. TCT also aids in creating and growing community foundations and by acting as a liaison between local, state, and national economic development groups, as well as actively taking part in established Community Development Groups or facilitating the establishment of such groups. The TCT Community Project Assistance Grant was created as a part of the initiative to nurture the growth and prosperity of TCT exchange communities, by supplying financial assistance. A subcommittee consisting of three TCT Board of Directors, and CEO, Dale Jones meets on a regular basis to approve grant submissions.
