  • Funds will be collected by the Bishop Sunrise Treasurer (John Helm) and disbursed through the Bishop Area Chamber of Commerce to small Bishop-area businesses who need funds for supplies, modifications and support to adapt to the new Covid reality. Examples of support that would qualify for funding are: 
    • Safety barriers and other COVID specific requirements needed to keep customers and employees safe.
    • Modifications for indoor and/or outdoor accommodations (shade structures, umbrellas, mist systems, outdoor furniture, etc.). Bishop has made it easier for restaurants to serve customers outside, but they need help getting set up.
    •  Internet assistance for setting up a web presence, online appointments and/or ordering system, online store and other internet needs.
    • Other needs determined by small businesses and the Rotary Clubs.
  • Bishop-area businesses are business located from Big Pine to the south to the northern Inyo County Line west of the White Mountains.
