ATAA & FTAA Grants
For a second year, TCA has awarded two major grants to the Assembly of Turkish American Associations (ATAA) and the Federation of Turkish American Associations (FTAA) to underwrite their grassroots education programs for 2009-2010. These grants are designed to build capacity of ATAA and FTAA, enabling the two organizations to hire full-time staff designated to implement grassroots strategies and to educate, as well as engage an increasing number of Turkish Americans in advocacy activities.
In 2011, TCA awarded a multi-year major grant to American Friends of Turkey (AFOT) to support the institutional development of AFOT and advance the organization's programs. The TCA grant will support the institutional development of AFOT and provide funding to institute a nationwide speaker program that engages local community organizations and features, among others, participants on the various Turkey travel programs by TCA and the
Turkish Cultural Foundation.
