CARES Act grants have been the focus of the Chamber of Commerce since the beginning of summer 2020. 

Businesses have struggled getting through the recent shut-downs by our government from Covid 19. We are doing all that we can to help them learn to pivot for success and know how to apply for grants available. 

We have currently distributed $325,165.00 in grant funds to our small business community.
