2020 Foundation for Rural Service Grant Program

GBT is proud to sponsor the 2020 Foundation for Rural Service Grant Program to support local efforts to sustain and enhance the quality of life in rural America.

Grants range from $250 to $5,000 in the following categories:

  • Business and Economic Development – Devise a plan to turn your community into a global phenomenon by growing small or existing businesses, developing new ones, and implementing a job creation program that attracts key talent from your community or from skilled individuals interested in relocating to small-town America.
  • Community Development – Develop an outreach program that helps to promote advancing technology skills of your community members, incorporates innovation into learning, raises the visibility of your community’s talent and artistry, and places your town on everyone’s bucket list as the place to visit!
  • Education – Support advances in education by helping your schools get technology (computers, smart boards, etc.) in the classroom, build resources for curriculum development, strengthen extracurricular activities and programs, and promote distance learning programs.
  • Telecommunications Applications – Show how you plan to turn your community into a technological powerhouse by promoting the implementation and use of broadband-enabled applications for telehealth, education, government services, safety and security, and efficient energy distribution and use.

STREAMIT: YOUR NEWEST TV OPTION

Between Set Top Box fees, HD content fees, and DVR fees, the average home pays over $360 a year in just added equipment and feature fees. That’s after you paid a hefty installation cost. We think that’s ridiculous, so we started building our StreamIT product by erasing ALL of those “added fees.”
