    A barbershop, a diner, and an auto shop are among 13 small businesses in the Indian Orchard neighborhood of Springfield, Massachusetts to receive some financial help this week to recover from the pandemic-induced shutdowns.

     They were selected for the $500 grants by the Indian Orchard Citizens Council.

     The funds came from Eastman Chemical. 

      Applications are being taken for a second round of grants.

      WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with citizens council president Zaida Govan.
