T-Mobile Celebrates 300 Hometown Grant Recipients, including Madison

Will help with Trolleys in Town


T-Mobile has announced Madison as one of its latest 25 Hometown Grant recipients. The $50,000 grant will go toward purchasing trolley vehicles, which will provide free routes around the community and between hotels and businesses for residents and visitors during conferences and special events. The grant was submitted by Visit Madison Inc.

“Trolleys have been a part of Madison for a long time, and thanks to T-Mobile’s support I am confident they will continue to be part of Madison for the future. I am ecstatic about the opportunity that the trolley provides for our residents and visitors to enjoy all that Madison has to offer,” said Andrew Forrester, Executive Tourism Director, Visit Madison.

Through Hometown Grants, people in communities nationwide are kickstarting projects that make a real difference and help their towns thrive. Since launching its five-year commitment to small towns in April 2021, T-Mobile has awarded a whopping 300 communities across 47 states and over $13 million in funding.
