SGA is partnering with T-mobile to assist rural communities

In a unique partnership focused on bringing vital connections to rural America, Smart Growth America is helping T-Mobile give one small community a prize package worth $3 million as well as millions in smaller grants for hundreds of other rural and small town communities to reinvest in their downtowns, improve their quality of life, become more resilient, and improve their connections.

With a track record of providing scores of smaller towns a roadmap for achieving economic vibrancy over the years, Smart Growth America will be helping the winner of the $3 million Hometown Techover develop and implement a plan to enrich the town’s development—such as a place-based economic development plan, the restoration of a neglected downtown square, infrastructure improvements in a historic neighborhood, or investments in a community center. Ready to transform your hometown? Think Smart Growth America could help your community?

Anyone can enter the contest at before it closes on Friday, May 7. Just upload a photo or video of your town and tell T-Mobile what makes it special. 

In addition to the big prize, T-Mobile will also be giving away $25 million to small communities over the next five years through hundreds of smaller Hometown Grants for all types of catalytic projects. If you are a local leader of almost any kind, nominate your town for a Hometown Grant here. The current round of applications are open from April to June, with winning towns announced in July.
