Chamber Advocacy Efforts

The Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce is part of a larger network that is advocating on behalf of your business!

Most recently, the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce has been advocating for the following:

  • Advocating for Federal CARES Act funds for Crystal Lake Businesses with the City of Crystal Lake.  The city is now offering $750,000 in Impacted Business Grants for businesses and restaurants negatively affected by the restrictions. Click here for information!

  • Against any unreasonable lock-down restrictions imposed on businesses and restaurants, citing that any unreasonable proposed restrictions and/or limitations further increase economic and mental health pressures on local business owners and employees.

  • Opposing the proposed Illinois Progressive Income Tax ("Fair Tax").

  • Increasing the occupancy percentage allowed in businesses and restaurants as winter approaches and outdoor dining becomes difficult.

  • Asking the Governor to separate McHenry County from Chicago in the Covid-19 designated health regions.

  • Clarification on Covid-19 guidelines for businesses and restaurants.

  • To allow restaurants to expand and offer outdoor dining.
