NCTNA Member’s Carolina Connection Grant

Introducing the NEW NCTNA Member’s Carolina Connection Grant!

We know that NCTNA’s affordable, best-in-class broadband improves the quality and accessibility of care for the providers we serve. We also know that no two healthcare organizations are the same—meaning budgets and dollars available for connectivity, equipment, technology, consulting, and other special projects can vary greatly.

Our Member’s Carolina Connection Grant Program represents a pathway of support for North Carolina Healthcare Providers, embodying our commitment to connecting and empowering the non-profit and public healthcare providers in NC. Through the grant, NCTNA aims to light the path toward access to care for all by providing essential funds for projects aligned with our mission.

Our focus is to enhance accessibility to high-speed, reliable broadband, ensuring equitable improvements in affordability and access to care for all. By fostering innovation and collaboration, the NCTNA Member’s Carolina Connection Grant Program strives to catalyze positive change within the healthcare landscape of North Carolina, creating a connected and empowered future for providers and the communities they serve.

This is the first year of the grant program, and our initial award amount has been set at $50,000 (with hopes to increase this amount in years to come). You may apply for a portion of the funding amount, or all, depending on the scope/needs of your proposal.
