A word from the Executive Director
Good afternoon Chamber Members,

The Callaway Chamber of Commerce is now open by appointment only. Thank you in advance for your patience as we iron out our processes to have the doors open full time. The Chamber team is available to you, our members, and are willing to meet with you. Please contact us at the Chamber at 573-642-3055 or by email.
 
As many of you may have seen, during Justis' time working from home, she worked to design and launch a new Chamber website. The new site launched on Wednesday the 8th. The new site has COVID-19 resources (including the CARES Act application and information), quick buttons to access job postings, press releases, and hot deals, and also has easy access to each individual member portal so they can update business info or post one of the items above! We also want to give a special thanks to Crane's Country Store for being our first sponsor for the website! You can see their logo on our homepage. Check out the new site here!


As our County Commissioners have informed us, the second round of CARES Act funding is available. You can check out the information regarding the funding and get your application at the chamber website under "COVID-19 Resources".

Additionally, Missouri has announced they will also be offering Small Business grants of up to $50,000 to Missouri businesses. Rob Dixon, Director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development announced $30 million in grant funds for small businesses, $20 million grants funds for manufacturing retooling to produce PPE and $7.5 million for family-owned farms and family farm corporations. This funding is directly from Missouri’s appropriated CARES Act Funding.

  • Grants are for businesses with 50 or less employees
  • Maximum amount of $50,000
  • On-line applications will be accepted beginning Wednesday, July 15th


We have also officially launched the MoAMP program and participants should call ahead to schedule an appointment to apply. Appointments to apply will be Monday through Thursday of next week (13th - 16th). Please pass this along to anyone who may benefit from additional training to help them exceed in the workplace and help strengthen our workforce as need 14 participants to make this happen in Callaway County! Those who want to schedule an appointment should call the Chamber office at 573.642.3055.
