PEORIA (HOI) -- Peoria businesses are now getting some help navigating all the Coronavirus aid at the local, state, and federal level. It is a one stop shop website. The City of Peoria has set up a COVID-19 resource page on growpeoria.com.

Kevin Evans with the city's economic development department says their goal is to help owners strategize.

"The issue is not whether or not there are resources, the issue is which of the resources that are out there are best for us as small businesses," said Evans.

The site includes links and descriptions as well as PDFs describing loans, grants, and details on unemployment benefits.

"If you have questions about whether or not you're essential, about how to access financial resources because your business was deemed non-essential...this is a site for you to go and find resources to try and assist you with that," added Evans.
