The mission of the Office of Grant Development is to further the institutional goals and objectives of the Shasta-Tehama-Trinity Joint Community College District by providing leadership and support for departments and teams engaging in grant development efforts that build institutional capacity, foster academic excellence, and enhance student success.

Since 2013, the Office of Grant Development has successfully contributed more than $150 million in grant and restricted funding to support the educational attainment and success of our students and advance the vision, mission, and strategic goals of Shasta College. Grants support college administration, instruction, faculty, staff, and students through program and curriculum development, state-of-the-art equipment, community engagement, public-private partnerships, and professional development.
