Since 1989, the Acadia Parish Chamber of Commerce has administered the Chamber Cash Program, which is a gift certificate program which encourages recipients to shop locally. Businesses, as well as individuals, may purchase Chamber Cash from the Chamber office in $5 denominations to be given as gifts, bonuses or as part of an incentive program. There is no surcharge for the certificates. Participating Chamber members may accept Chamber Cash just as they would their own gift certificate. Businesses may then redeem the certificates at the Chamber office. In the spirit of regional cooperation, the reciprocal agreement between the Acadia and Rayne Chambers of Commerce continues. Chamber member businesses of both communities who provide goods or services will be able to accept Chamber Cash issued by the Acadia and Rayne Chambers.
Approximately $75,000 is circulated annually through the Chamber Cash program.
