The T-Mobile Hometown Grants program is investing $25 million in 500 rural towns over 5 years to jumpstart revitalizing projects and build stronger communities.
They are funding projects ranging from upgrading tech at local libraries, to building new hiking trails, to revitalize historic buildings, and much more.
Such projects foster local connections, such as technology upgrades, outdoor spaces, the arts, and community centers.
T-Mobile awards up to $50,000 for shovel-ready projects. Applicant’s proposal must include plans, budget, timeline, anticipated impact, and up to five letters of support.
Who can request a grant? Elected officials, town managers/employees, tribal leaders, or nonprofit community leaders from small towns with population less than 50,000 can apply.
