City of Peoria launches website to assist businesses affected by COVID-19 pandemic


PEORIA (HOI) -- In an effort to assist businesses affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the city of Peoria has developed a website to act as a one-stop shop for owners and operators to access resources and information.

The Peoria Economic Development Department's Combating COVID-19 website provides information on grant, loan and unemployment information for business owners and more.

Earlier this month, Gov. JB Pritzker ordered all non-essential businesses to cease operations in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.

A list of businesses deemed essential by the state can be found here.

On the Combating COVID-19 website, users will be able to access information related to:

  • Filing for unemployment
  • City resources
  • Volunteer opportunities
  • Loan and grant resources
  • Public health information

Business owners and operators can contact the Economic Development Department at 309-494-8640 or by emailing
