REGIONAL – For programs and services that meet the needs of the vision impaired, improve their quality of life, and enable them to live an independent and productive life, the Greater Newburyport Fund for the Blind (GNFB) is accepting grant applications for up to $5,000 from non-profit organizations and charities.
