COVID-19 Business Resources

Please know that we are here for you and your business and can take questions or try to help you connect to local, state, and national resources. Our staff is working behind the scenes, some from the office and some from home. We will be posting resources below as they come available.

While chamber events have been postponed, we are looking at new ways to connect and bring meaningful gatherings to our members. If you would like to connect with us please call 231-722-3751 or email mlcc@muskegon.org

If you are in need of hand sanitizer and you are a first responder, health care provider, or an essential business please contact Wonderland Distilling.
