Lomita Chamber of Commerce
The Lomita Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the City of Lomita and the South Bay Workforce Investment Board (SBWIB), is championing an innovative and resilient recovery program to accelerate economic growth for business owners and their employees, thanks to the acquisition of stimulus funds received by Lomita from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021. The Act provides opportunities to support economic development activities, capital improvement projects and other initiatives.
The program provides no cost enhanced services to business, including training options along with employee wage subsidy programs and other forms of assistance. The chamber and the SBWIB are reaching out to the entire business community to assess their needs and provide information on services and resources. The partnership also promotes the city’s new facade improvement program, which is also funded by the ARPA grant. Additionally, the chamber helps to promote the SBWIB’s services by sharing printed and social media news with its membership and community partners.
