Façade Improvement Grant

Thanks to a generous anonymous local sponsor, the Bishop Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Façade Improvement Grant Program.

For the current 2017 cycle, the Chamber has $8,000 available to fund projects that may include paint, lighting, new canopies or awnings, signs or other cosmetic upgrades to buildings within the downtown Bishop commercial district. Approved projects may be funded entirely or may be used with matching funds. Eligible applicants may be property owners or business tenants, with owner’s approval, located within the historic core of downtown Bishop.

Details about the program and application materials are now available at the Bishop Chamber Office – 690 N. Main Street.  For more information, contact the Bishop Chamber (760) 873-8405.

The application form is simple, brief and due by July 31, 2017.

A Better Community

A better community means better business and we are working for a better community for everyone here. That’s why we do what we do. There is but one reason for the Chamber of Commerce to exist and that is to do whatever is necessary to keep this area’s economic condition such that people will be willing to risk their resources here in the hope of making a profit. Everything else is either a means to an end, or just the frosting of the cake. In any community, it is from the profitable operation of business that all other benefits are derived. Only by succeeding in this fundamental goal can we provide the jobs and produce the wealth to finance all of the governmental, civic, cultural and charitable needs that our community is faced with everyday. We do a lot of diverse things to accomplish that primary goal. and it is this goal, as well as, continuing to promote the region to enhance tourist activities which will be our mission for the coming year.
