This paper investigates the regional gradient controllability for ultra-slow diffusion processes governed by the time fractional diffusion systems with a Hadamard-Caputo time fractional derivative. Some necessary and sufficient conditions on regional gradient exact and approximate controllability are first given and proved in detail. Secondly, we propose an approach on how to calculate the minimum number of $\omega-$strategic actuators. Moreover, the existence, uniqueness and the concrete form of the optimal controller for the system under consideration are presented by employing the Hilbert Uniqueness Method (HUM) among all the admissible ones. Finally, we illustrate our results by an interesting example.
