The CTF is first applied for the repair and maintenance of temples under the direct administration of the Committee and for the holding of customary ceremonies, any surplus may be transferred to the General Chinese Charities Fund (GCCF) which is also managed by the Committee.

The CTF usually invites funding applications twice a year in January (for programs to be held within the 12-month period commencing 1st July of the year) and in July (for programs to be held within the 12-month period commencing next year).
