State Funding to Support Equity in Haverhill
The Power of Self Education (POSE) is a Haverhill based and black-led nonprofit that focuses on issues of equity, the school to prison pipeline, and community engagement. Rep. Vargas secured $25,000 in state support for POSE (Power of Self Learning). In 2019, Rep. Vargas organized a Latino small business tour in Haverhill with elected officials and the Haverhill Chamber. We heard great feedback and a call for support. Working together with the Haverhill Chamber and the City of Haverhill, $95,000 was secured through the state's Urban Agenda grant to provide technical assistance, survey and support minority-owned businesses in Haverhill. Massachusetts also ranks #1 in Latino homelessness in the U.S.– Rep. Vargas has secured $65,000 in annual state funding for Emmaus Inc. homeless shelter in Haverhill.
