The City of Peoria is funding capital improvement projects at eight local nonprofit agencies that serve Peoria community members in low-income households through the Nonprofit Capital Program. Applications were reviewed by the CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) Public Services Advisory Commission and agencies were notified of the funding decision following City Council approval on Tuesday, May 10th.

 

The following organizations were provided funding:

  • Boys and Girls Club of Greater Peoria – $58,560
  • Center for Prevention of Abuse – $75,000
  • Crittenton Centers – $75,000
  • Dream Center – $75,000
  • Hult Center for Healthy Living – $74,525
  • George Washington Carver Center – $75,000
  • Minority Business Development Center – $75,000
  • Tri-County Urban League – $75,000

 

“This program allows these nonprofits to make needed capital improvements so that they can focus more of their time and energy on continuing to provide, and even expand, services to vulnerable community members,” said Mayor Rita Ali.

 

The Nonprofit Capital Program is financed through two sources of federal funding: the 2022 American Rescue Plan Act and the city of Peoria’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) federal funding allocation.
