    BELLEVUE, WA / ACCESSWIRE / June 24, 2024 / The Un-carrier is painting even more towns magenta. T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) unveiled its latest 25 Hometown Grant recipients, tallying up to 300 communities across 47 states, including, for the first time, Rhode Island. The grantees will each receive up to $50,000 in funding from T-Mobile to kickstart local development projects that enhance communities, such as building adaptive playgrounds, launching small business initiatives and beautifying downtowns.

    T-Mobile has provided more than $13 million in Hometown Grants since it kicked off its five-year commitment to small towns and rural communities in April 2021. To date, Hometown Grants has created more than 78,000 volunteer hours, rallying people to come together and uplift their towns.

    "Hometown Grants is T-Mobile's way of giving people in small towns a chance to build a more resilient future, and it's incredibly inspiring to see the impact it's had on 300 communities knowing there's many more to come," said Jon Freier, President, Consumer Group, T-Mobile. "When we started this program three years ago, we knew it had the power to make a difference, but to see so many people come together for their towns is truly extraordinary."

    Here are the next 25 Hometown Grant recipients and their projects:
