TSSKs Produksjonsstipend lyses ut årlig og tildeles til profesjonelle billedkunstnere og kunsthåndverkere. Stipendmidlene tildeles senteret fra Bildende Kunstneres Hjelpefond (BKH) sin ordning «Delegerte tildelinger» viss formål er å styrke det regionale kunstfeltet i tilknytning til kunstsentrenes virksomhet.
Som kunstnerstyrt visningsrom er Trøndelag senter for samtidskunst opptatt av å støtte opp om arbeidsvilkårene og økonomien til kunstnere med bo og virke i Trøndelag. Midlene fra BKH går uavkortet til stipendutdeling og bidrar i arbeidet senteret gjør for å stimulere og styrke det profesjonelle kunst- og kunstnermiljøet i regionen.
BKH sine retningslinjer ligger til grunn for innstillingene, og er godkjent av styret i TSSK.
