In August TCW Broadband applied for the CoBank Sharing Success matching grant on behalf of the Hillsboro Police Department. The grant, which was for the purchase of dash cameras, was awarded to the Hillsboro Police Department in late September. CoBank and TCW Broadband each provided $5,000, for a total grant amount of $10,000. TCW worked with the Hillsboro Community Foundation to provide pass through services for the funds.
“We are excited to be in Hillsboro and look forward to bringing more opportunities, like this grant, to the community.” said TCW, C.E.O. Dale Jones. Hillsboro Mayor Lou Thurston added, “TCW is an integral part of the Hillsboro community. They represent the best in what private / public partnerships are all about. We thank them so much for making possible this very generous donation that will improve the safety of our citizens and police officers.”
TCW Broadband partnered with CoBank to finance the Fiber to the Premise Broadband project in Hillsboro. CoBank is one of the largest private providers of credit to the U.S. rural economy, delivering loans, leases and other financial services to agribusiness, rural infrastructure, and Farm Credit customers in all 50 states. The CoBank Sharing Success grant has contributed tens of millions of dollars to groups such as volunteer fire departments, local schools, and hunger relief programs.
