Kubota’s New “Hometown Proud” $100,000 Grant Program Now Accepting Community Revitalization Project Applications

3/11/2021 Categories: All

GRAPEVINE, Texas (March 10, 2021) – Kubota Tractor Corporation today announced a first-ever community revitalization grant program, “Hometown Proud,” and is calling on all cities, towns, municipalities and nonprofits to submit an application for a chance to win $100,000 in funding and use of Kubota equipment to refresh, refurbish or revitalize a public space. The application process is open now through April 27, 2021, and any community project – from parks, playgrounds, and baseball fields to rodeo and community arenas, and more – will be considered. Five finalists will be selected and put to public vote in May; the community project with the highest combined score from points and votes will be awarded the grant during summer 2021. Visit KubotaHometownProud.com to enter.

“At Kubota, we know times have been tough over the past year. Just like for our dealer network and the communities they serve, we know municipalities and nonprofits never stopped working to provide support,” said Todd Stucke, Kubota Senior Vice President, Marketing, Product Support & Strategic Projects. “The Hometown Proud grant program couples much-needed funding with the use of hard-working Kubota equipment – whether it be excavators, turf equipment or tractors – versatile tools to bring a community project to life for one local city, town or a nonprofit that helps it stay strong. It could be your community. It could be your vision. Our mission is to help you build it.”

How to Enter Kubota’s Hometown Proud Grant Program

Applying is an easy, three-step process:
