Huss receives $50,000 T-Mobile grant for Community Bike Shop

Community Bike Shop

T-Mobile announces Three Rivers as one of its latest 25 Hometown Grant recipients. The $50,000 grant will go toward renovating part of the Huss Project for a community bike shop—repairing used bikes with and for our neighbors, developing an earn-a-bike youth bike program with partners, and adding a bike-powered community compost program for our urban farm—to increase mobility, accessibility, and connectivity throughout our city. The grant was submitted by Culture is Not Optional NFP.

“I’m very excited that Three Rivers will have a bike shop again! It’s a sorely needed resource in our community and the Huss neighborhood is the perfect place for it,” said Tom Lowry, Mayor of Three Rivers. “I know this new community bike shop will serve the families in that neighborhood and our city well because of the Huss Project’s proven track record of good work in Three Rivers.” 

“With this grant, the Huss Project will be able to institute a Community Bike Shop on the south end of the Huss Project building that would benefit our entire community,” said Torrey Brown, City Commissioner for Three Rivers. “As a parent of 7-, 11-, and 18-year-olds, this project will benefit my family and other families tremendously. Three Rivers is a growing community and the Huss Project plays a huge role in the city.” 

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.
