Twin Lakes makes an impact with community grants

Posted: March 21, 2022

With a state-of-the-art fiber network, Twin Lakes is using its community grant program to help local organizations make better use of technology.

Twin Lakes awarded more than $85,000 to 19 local organizations to enhance the quality of life for those who live, work and play in the Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee.

These organizations include schools, libraries, fire departments, economic development groups and more. With the grant money, organizations purchased everything from security cameras to computers, videoconferencing software, virtual reality equipment and even projector screens for outdoor community movie nights.

“Our member companies have a long history and connection to the needs of their communities,” says TNBA Executive Director Carrie Huckeby. “These grants are an excellent example of their commitment to the areas they serve, and to ensure needed resources are available for these communities.”

The community grant program is offered annually through Twin Lakes to support local technology efforts to build and sustain a high quality of life in rural America.

“We look forward to the significant impact these projects will have on our local communities now and in the years to come,” says Twin Lakes CEO Jonathan West.
