Grants

CTN awards grants to support its mission of enhancing the quality of life in southeast Michigan. CTN seeks pilot projects that expand the wireless technology knowledge base and have the potential to be replicable and scalable. Educators and community-based organizations within Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties have an opportunity to re-imagine learning and community programs for the 21st century through projects funded by CTN. Grants are awarded for a one year period. Projects that demonstrate success in the first year have an option to request additional funds for a second year.
