Mission: The Over-the-Rhine Chamber of Commerce works to be the driving force for creating a strong economy while promoting inclusivity, embracing diversity, and celebrating originality.

Serving Our Community: In a neighborhood receiving worldwide attention for its transformation, the Over- the-Rhine Chamber is dedicated to continuing the community’s forward momentum through supporting new and existing businesses in OTR, from nonprofits and incubator/accelerators to local shops, arts, and entertainment.

The chamber’s vital programs include marketing and communications campaigns, safety and beautification services, educational workshops, and business attraction and retention grants. Our business- retention program has awarded more than $47,000 to 20 local businesses since 2014. Likewise, our business attraction program has awarded more than $460,000 to 31 businesses since 2006, creating hundreds of local jobs, and is currently focused on funding minority-owned businesses.

Your support for the OTR Chamber has a direct impact on our efforts to create and sustain a strong local economy and a vibrant, inclusive urban core.
