Business Improvement Grant
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, funded by the proceeds from the Rodeo. In order to be eligible to apply for these grant funds, a business must be a Chamber member in good standing with the organization.
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. For a list of rules and Business Improvement Grant applications, you may download the application, visit our office inside the Berrien County Administrative Building, 201 North Davis Street, Nashville, or call 229-686-5123.
