The Berrien County Chamber of Commerce Business Improvement Grant Program is available to Chamber members wishing to make improvements to their business. The Business Improvement Grant is intended for for-profit businesses located within Berrien County. Grants may be awarded for interior and exterior improvements (painting, landscaping, signage, lighting, etc.). Grants will not be awarded to assist with daily operations of a business i.e. staffing, rent, utilities, inventory, etc. The grant is a matching grant with the maximum award of $500. In order to be eligible to apply for these grant funds, a business must be a Chamber member in good standing with the organization.
The Business Improvement Grant Program is funded through proceeds of the Cotton Blossom Roundup.
Business Improvement Grant applicants are required to submit a description of their project to the Chamber prior to beginning the project in order to be eligible to receive grant funds.
