    Lockhart Chamber of Commerce & Caldwell County Community Services Foundation Business Grant Assistance Program

    The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated the ability of our businesses to perform routine trade and commerce transactions. Many of these businesses, some with a local presence expanding decades, have limited access to customers; even to the point of having to close their door - hopefully only a temporary status!

    The Lockhart Chamber of Commerce and the Caldwell County Community Services Foundation have created this grant program with the help of Capital Area Housing Finance Corporation to assist local businesses to meet the challenges of maintaining payroll, paying rent, utilities and general operating expenses. A simple grant application and guidelines have been developed. The process is designed to get these emergency funds into the hands of local entrepreneurs in a time turn-around period.
