Kubota’s Hometown Proud Contest Now Open

Kubota to award a total of $600,000 to 20 local communities.


Kubota Tractor Corporation reaffirmed its commitment to supporting local customers, dealers, and communities with the return of the Kubota Hometown Proud™ grant program. Established in 2021, the program provides a way for Kubota to give back to community projects by integrating Kubota’s dealer network. The fourth annual contest will provide support for even more local communities to grow, build, or revitalize their local projects by awarding 20 grants across the country. Two grants will be handed out in each of the company’s ten operating districts. After a public voting campaign in August, each district winner will receive $50,000, and 10 district runners-up will receive $10,000, totaling $600,000 in grants this year.Hometown ProudLocal Support, Nationwide
