Anadarko receives T-Mobile $50,000 grant

 The City of Anadarko was selected as one of twenty-five cities to receive a grant from the mobile phone company T-Mobile.
 The $50,000 grant will be used to enhance and beautify the Miller Theatre Park at SW 2nd and Main.
The project will benefit the park, which includes an outdoor greenspace area, a raised stage and amphitheater, restrooms, outdoor seating, and a concession stand that includes mural space honoring the town’s rich history as the Indian Capital of the Nation!.
 A statement from T-Mobile named its next 25 Hometown Grant recipients, bringing the total to 225 communities since the Un-carrier announced its massive five-year commitment to small towns in April 2021. The company has now given more than $10 million to kickstart community development ideas across 42 states, with projects like upgrading tech at local libraries, building new hiking trails and revitalizing historic buildings.
 To select Hometown Grant recipients, T-Mobile works with Main Street America and Smart Growth America — two organizations with expertise in building stronger, healthier and more connected communities. Applications are evaluated based on their level of detail and completeness, community need and impact, feasibility and other considerations. T-Mobile awards 25 Hometown Grants each quarter to small towns with a population of 50,000 or less.
 The only other Oklahoma community receiving a grant was Guthrie, who will use their funds to improve a shelter for homeless families.
