“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,” Kubota Tractor Corp. President Todd Stucke said in a media release.

Kubota plans to award 10 grants at $10,000 each and 10 grants at $50,000 each.

“Kubota is laying the groundwork for a better future, and it all starts with giving back to communities in need,” Stucke said.
