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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
