$25,000 in grants available to black-owned small businesses in Massachusetts

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Power Forward Grant, from Vistaprint, the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation, and the NAACP announced a $1M grant program that aims to create a lasting impact on black-owned small businesses across New England with grants of $25,000.

The Power Forward Small Business Grant program will provide customized marketing and design assistance, offering opportunities to be featured on national co-branded platforms, and to help small businesses grow.

The launch of the grant is part of Vistaprint’s efforts to support its small business partners.

“The pandemic has placed monumental strain on small businesses, and the past year has made clear our society’s need to work harder for equality, equity, and opportunity for all. We are proud to partner with like-minded organizations like the NAACP and the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation to help small business owners find success and achieve their dreams,” said Robert Keane, Vistaprint Founder and CEO.

Small businesses with 1-25 employees in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, or select areas of Connecticut that are black-owned can apply at NAACP.org.
