Retirees in need of help:

Any person who is receiving or is eligible to receive an annuity from the Teacher Retirement System of Texas may apply for a TRTF grant through the "A Helping Hand" program. Membership in TRTA is not required.

A person in need of assistance must demonstrate verifiable emergency need. Emergency need is defined as a short-term financial hardship caused by unexpected circumstances such as natural disasters, illness, injury, accidents, or crisis that requires quick action.

TRTF will award grants in any amount up to $1000 per grant application.
