T-Mobile Hometown Grant

With T-Mobile’s recent announcement of 25 recipient communities in its Hometown Grants program, it means the program to date has invested more than $11 million in grants to 250 communities across 43 states.

The program will award grants totaling $25 million through 2026.

T-Mobile Hometown Grants were first announced in April 2021. At that time, the program — then known as the T-Mobile Hometown Techover — launched with the announcement of a contest that would award $3 million in equipment and upgrades to a community with a population of 50,000 or less.

The winner, announced the following September, was Woodstock, Ill.

“With 250 recipients, we’ve officially hit the halfway mark with T-Mobile’s Hometown Grants, and the impact is astounding,” Jon Freier, president of T-Mobile’s Consumer Group, said in a prepared statement. “This milestone isn’t just about communities revitalizing their towns … it’s acknowledging the ripple effect — job creation and tens of thousands of volunteer hours sparking a profound wave of positive change throughout Small Town America — and I can’t wait to see what the next half brings.”

Among the 25 grant winners announced today are:

  • Alabama — Talladega: build a unity playground, an inclusive and ADA accessible public park.
  • California — Coalinga: build the Coalinga Splash Park; Paradise: install the students of the Ridge handprint tile mural at Paradise Community Park; Soledad: build an inclusive performing arts stage at the Soledad Community Center.
  • Missouri — Hannibal: revitalize the Bluff City Theatre Auditorium.
  • Oklahoma — El Reno: renovate Fort Reno Visitor Center and Museum; Kansas: restore Kansas Park; Poteau: build the new downtown Dewey District.
  • Pennsylvania — York: begin upgrading the York Area United Fire and Rescue Department’s staff response vehicles.
  • Virginia — Bristol: create the Bristol Mobile Minds Library; Smithfield: restore the Station Bridge at Windsor Castle Park.
