The $250,000 grant comes on the heels of recent $30,000 Digital Education Grant to the Y from Spectrum. The broadband connectivity provider has committed a total of $8 million over 6 years to promote digital education and broadband technology in communities across the country.

In Missoula, the Spectrum grant will help fund the construction of a new STEAM Center, E-Gaming Lab and Digital Arts Suite on the Y’s Russell Street campus next year.
