Economic Development

The County of Peoria is dedicated to growing jobs and the local economy. We do that through a wide variety of partnerships and programs. We partner with local governments like the City of Peoria and the Village of Peoria Heights, and regional economic development agencies like the Greater Peoria Economic Development Council (GPEDC) and the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (TCRPC). We have several loan programs tailored to the size and type of growth your company might need. We also have several initiatives that focus on specific segments of the economy such as our Grow Peoria County campaign focusing on encouraging residents to support local businesses.
