Funding Your TIC Program

There are various ways to obtain funding to start or continue a TIC program in your school.
Please contact the PATU staff member for grant writing tips and suggestions. While staff cannot write the grant application for you, we can help provide information about TIC program educational and conservation goals and objectives as well as useful metrics for success that could strengthen your application.

PATU Grants

Pennsylvania Council of Trout Unlimited (PATU) offers a grant program for TIC schools each year. The grant helps fund costs associated with keeping an already established TIC program running.

Community Organizations, Partners, Corporations and Foundations

There are often many groups within your community and nationally who may be willing to help support your TIC program through contributions and grant opportunities. Many teachers also work with their local Pennsylvania Trout Unlimited Chapter or local conservation group.
