We are searching for projects that will have a regional impact in Greater Peoria.

The Greater Peoria EDC will be scoring and prioritizing regional projects to submit to the Economic Development Administration (EDA) for our Focus Forward Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS).

Projects that are included in the Focus Forward CEDS become more eligible for federal funding. Project location must be regional in nature, located in Logan, Mason, Peoria, Tazewell, or Woodford counties and be led by a government or nonprofit agency. They should also be aligned to regional goals, supporting business development and job creation, workforce development and attraction, and the improvement of our regional quality of life.
