T-Mobile Empowers Small Town America with Latest Round of Hometown Grants

By Sonish Lathwal 13/12/2023

T-Mobile continues its mission of revitalizing small towns across the US through community-led projects. Their Hometown Grant program recently selected another batch of deserving recipients to receive funds totaling over $11 million donated so far.

T-Mobile's program has already benefited 250 communities in 43 states. Recipients use the grants to improve infrastructure, build playgrounds, renovate public spaces and more - positively impacting local economies.

The latest towns selected for funding include Talladega, AL to build a new playground, Coalinga, CA for a splash pad, Paradise, CA for a mural project and more recipients across 20 states.

The grant will help construct the Build Unity Playground, a fully inclusive space for all children. It will be a welcoming community hub for years to come.

Coalinga, CA was awarded funds for their Soledad Community Center project - a splash pad that will provide a fun gathering place to beat the summer heat.

After the devastating Camp Fire, Paradise is rebuilding with a mural by local artist Michael Rosato honoring the tight-knit community and its resilience.

From Darien, GA to Pullman, WA, grants are going towards beautification projects that draw visitors and boost local businesses down historic main drags. Museums like those in El Reno, OK and Kingstree, SC receive support to educate future generations on their small town roots and heritage.

New gymnasiums, libraries and community centers financed by T-Mobile grants strengthen the social fabric of towns like Rice, TX and Bristol, VA.

With $25 million allocated through 2026, many more rural revitalization success stories are on the horizon thanks to T-Mobile's ongoing Hometown Grant program
