MVYRADIO has awarded its tenth round of Business Diversity Initiative grants to local businesses.

For this quarter, Boxed in Black of Cranston, R.I., Boutique on the Buy Way of Falmouth, Legacy Week on the Vineyard of Bronx, N.Y. and Shored Up Digital of Edgartown and Falmouth were selected to receive a grant of 60 underwriting messages each on MVYRADIO to be used to inform the public about their business. The flight of 15-second messages is valued at $1,200 for each grantee.

The Business Diversity Initiative was created to offer underwriting messages to traditionally under-served business owners, including those owned by women, people who identify as black, Indigenous or people of color, immigrants, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, as well as members of the LGBTQIA+ community, the disability community and veterans. To date, MVYRADIO has donated $34,800 worth of airtime to this initiative.

Applications for the next round are available now through March 31. More information can be found at
