GRM Networks has partnered with the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS), the philanthropic arm of NTCA – The Rural Broadband Association, to offer grants that support local organizations in their efforts to build and sustain a high quality of life in rural America. Grants may be awarded in the following categories:

  • Business and Economic Development
  • Community Development
  • Education
  • Telecommunications Applications

Grant requests may range between $250 and $5,000. GRM Networks will contribute 10 percent toward the one-time grant, with the remainder funded by FRS.

Priority for grants will be given to projects that:

  • Could be fully funded by the grant maximum of $5,000 or have at least 75 percent of the project currently funded
  • Focus on technology and broadband-enabled projects
  • Have a long-term impact on the community and its residents
  • Promote community participation and engagement
  • Create a more sustainable rural community
