Greenpoint Biz Asks for Local Help to Win Grant

BY Greenpoint Gazette

Greenpoint-based Pride Powder Coating is looking for local support to move on to the next step to win a $150,000 grant from Chase Bank.

Pride Powder Coating, whose environmentally-friendly, powder paint gives Citibike’s blue bicycles their gleaming sheen and decorates the sets of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, has applied for a $150,000 grant from Chase as part of a newly launched program, Mission Main Street Grants.

To become eligible for a grant, the Division Place company must submit a questionnaire outlining a business plan that will result in growth of its business and receive at least 250 votes. That’s where company owners Candace Oshinsky and Jose Rodriguez are asking for the neighborhood’s help.

This grant will enable Pride Powder Coating to grow and build in our community. “As a member of the Greenpoint Chamber of Commerce, we want our neighbors, other manufacturers and artists to know they can count on us whenever they have metal finishing needs,” Oshinsky said.

To vote for Pride Powder Coating, visit using Facebook Connect. The voting deadline is October 17, 2014 and grant recipients will be selected by expert panelists.

Through Mission Main Street Grants, Chase will award $3 million to small businesses across the country. In addition, the 20 grant recipients will be eligible to receive a trip to Google for an exclusive small business marketing workshop with Google experts and a Google Chromebook laptop. Google is a premier sponsor of the grant program.

The 20 grant recipients will be announced in January 2015. For additional details about Mission Main Street Grants visit
