Meta announced Thursday it will expand the Huntsville Data Center campus with two new buildings, reaching nearly 3.5 million square feet. This expansion raises the company’s investment in Huntsville to more than $1.5 billion, and once it’s completed, the data center is expected to support more than 300 operational jobs.
In addition to the expansion, Meta announced $225,000 to Raise Your Hand, an initiative that aims to add 500 new National Board Certified Teachers to Huntsville City, Madison City, and Madison County school systems. Meta will also donate $75,000 to the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering to support STEM equipment for the school. With these two grants, Meta has given more than $1.5 million to local schools in Huntsville since 2019. Thank you, Meta!
