The three-year, $200,000 grant by Time Warner will support technology centers that provide training, technology and support services in Latino communities served by the company. Under the agreement, the centers will receive desktop computers, laser printers, high-speed Internet access, LCD projectors and technology curricula.

The centers are located in San Antonio, TX; Kansas City, MO (existing); Waukesha, WI (existing); Charlotte, NC; and Cincinnati. They were selected by a national grant competition based on each site's competitive progress, its level of need to better serve the local community and its innovative application of technology.
