Innovative Program / Continuing Education Grants

CACCE is again providing an opportunity to pursue one of two grant opportunities geared toward either Continuing Education ($1,000 max) or an Innovative Program ($2,500 max). Take an idea or concept you believe will benefit your chamber, your staff, your members, or your community and turn that concept into a project/program. Or is there a training opportunity for you or a staff member that you need help to attend? Do the research, determine the need, build a budget, and then complete the application process.  The grants are typically announced and awarded at the Annual Management Conference in the Fall.

The 2021 program is now open, and applications are due by Friday, August 27 by 5pm.  Please click the link below for the program application:

Disaster Fund Grants for CACCE Members

CACCE has created a Disaster Fund to assist our members in times of natural disasters.  CACCE member chambers that need assistance after a natural disaster may apply for a grant from this fund if they meet the following criteria:

  • The Chamber has suffered financial losses due to direct damage to their building and/or a disruption in normal operations as a results of a natural disaster;
  • The Chamber is located in a county that has been declared a federal disaster area (grant applications received from chambers in a community that has not been declared a federal disaster area will be reviewed at the discretion of the CACCE Executive Committee); 
  • The Chamber is a current, paid member of CACCE; and,
  • The Chamber has at least one full-time employee.

CACCE member chambers must complete the application below and submit it to the CACCE Administrator.  The application must be received within six (6) months of the natural disaster.  The CACCE Executive Committee will review all grant applications, and any grants to be awarded will not exceed $1,500 per application.  No applicant may be awarded more than one grant per year.


Applicants may be asked to provide verification or additional information with regard to funds received.

Please email completed applications to your CACCE Administrator, Tiffany Fulmer Ott, at
