“As a public radio station, we want to make sure our platform is accessible to a diverse array of listeners, community members and clients,” Tristan Israel, MVYRadio board member and chair of the diversity committee, said in a press release. “We hope to help give a lift to some businesses who are trying to tell their story.”
The Business Diversity Initiative grants were originally created to offer underwriting messages to business owners from traditionally underrepresented communities.
The application period for the next round of grants is currently open. The deadline is December 31 and the winners will be awarded in the first week of January. The application and more information about the grant can be found at https://www.mvyradio.org/diversity.
