Request Emergency Funds

Unexpected things can happen in life. To alleviate the burden of unplanned expenses, the TCC Foundation has emergency funds available to help students. If you have an emergency expense you can’t afford, and it’s keeping you from continuing your education or causing problems at home, you may be eligible for an emergency grant.

Examples of covered expenses:

  • Essential living expenses
  • Child care
  • Utility bills
  • Medical
  • Auto repair
  • Other hardships
  • Textbooks or bills owed to TCC for one-time program-related expenses
  • Cell phone
