Connect Grants


ATMC Connect Grants have been established to provide grant funds which will aid in covering costs associated with the utilization of ATMC broadband services to support economic development and community initiatives which require connectivity. This grant program is a key element of the ATMC's vision to enhance access to and increase the use of technology in our community.


Our cooperative has always been a good corporate citizen. Over the years, we have generously given hundreds of thousands of dollars in services and financial contributions to a wide scope of community groups and organizations. Our employees have been active as well, helping to uphold the cooperative spirit. The decision was made to establish a grant program so that we could directly address specific needs in our community and achieve the greatest benefit for our residents.


  • Connect Grants must be for programs utilizing broadband services received from ATMC which directly benefit residents, businesses or organizations who serve Brunswick County or the areas of Columbus County served by ATMC.
  • Organizations must demonstrate through the application process how the project will encourage economic growth or benefit the community served by enhancing access to, or increasing knowledge and use of, technology in specific measurable ways.
  • A follow up report to show how the funds were used is required to be submitted within six months of disbursement of grant monies.
  • ATMC requires the right to use information, photos and videos of grant recipients and their projects for promotion.


ATMC is currently accepting applications for our 2018 Connect grants. Grants are accepted annually on a rolling basis and will continue to award up to $25,000 annually in the community.
