Kubota to Quadruple Grants, Offer More Chances to Win Kubota Hometown Proud Grant Program

March 27, 2024
Company will award a total of $600,000 to 20 local communities.

Kubota Tractor Corp. 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, and it integrates Kubota’s dealer network, impacting local projects, nationwide. 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 in each of the company’s 10 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.

“We are excited to announce the fourth year of the Kubota Hometown Proud™ grant program, which exemplifies Kubota’s goal of staying deeply rooted in community support for our dealers, our customers and our employees,” said Todd Stucke, President, Kubota Tractor Corp. “Kubota is laying the groundwork for a better future, and it all starts with giving back to communities in need. To date, Kubota has awarded $1.3 million in hometown grants, with another $600,000 investment planned for 2024. We are proud of the impact our equipment has in enhancing and uplifting the communities we serve.”

Local Support, Nationwide

Each dealer in Kubota’s 1,100-strong dealer network takes pride in giving back to the communities where they live and work. Kubota is helping to further foster their local relationships and empower local initiatives by connecting national grant resources to community projects that make significant impact, right in its dealers’ own backyards. The program is now accepting applications for a chance to bring home funding to your community. All 501(c)(3) nonprofits within a 50-mile radius of an authorized Kubota dealer are invited to enter their project. Kubota encourages all types of community projects to apply from community gardens, public spaces, and food banks, to increasing access to agriculture education, and more. Visit KubotaHometownProud.com to submit your application by April 12, 2024.

Here’s How to Enter

Applying is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  • Step One: Visit KubotaHometownProud.com between now and April 12, 2024. An authorized employee or officer with the legal authority to act on behalf of the registered 501(c)(3) organization or municipality’s nonprofit partner can enter.
  • Step Two: Fill out the online application form to tell us about a community project in need.
  • Step Three: Upload project photos and organization information, then click ‘enter.’ That’s it!


After the application period closes on Friday, April 12, 2024, all project entries will be reviewed, and Kubota will select 20 winners – two from each of Kubota’s 10 operating districts – to each be elevated for public vote. Then, from August 1-14, 2024, the public is invited to visit KubotaHometownProud.com and cast a vote daily for the top project in their district. The community project with the highest number of votes in each district will be presented with a $50,000 grant, and each district runner-up will receive a $10,000 grant. Moreover, voters have a chance to win, too; every vote cast serves as one entry into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a Kubota zero-turn mower or sub-compact tractor.
