Choteau Chamber of Commerce Awarded Montana Social Services Nonprofit Grant

We Got the Grant!

The Choteau Chamber of Commerce was awarded a Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services Social Services Nonprofit Grants. The Chamber was notified that it was awarded a full $10,000 grant to backfill the lost revenue from the cancellation of the annual Brew Fest, normally held on the 3rd of July and the Pitchfork Fondue Steak Fry, normally held on the 4th of July.

A part of the $10,000 grant – $5,100 – was awarded to cover lost revenue due to the cancellation of the Choteau Fireworks Fundraiser in April. An additional $5,000 needs to be raised to cover next year’s fireworks show. Donations to support the Choteau Fireworks Fund can be made at the Chamber’s Choteau Fireworks Donation page.

The Choteau Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization of individuals, farmers, ranchers, and businesses who band together to advance the commercial, agricultural, industrial, civic and general interest of the City of Choteau and its trade area, to improve the business environment and quality of life of our community.
