SMALL BUSINESS ASSISTANCE

The application period for Small Business Assistance is now CLOSED.

A virtual lottery was held on Tuesday, July 7th at 10:00 am to create a randomized list of businesses that had applied for the program. Please note, being included in the lottery does NOT guarantee funding.

The businesses will be screened for eligibility by City staff in the randomized lottery order. They will be required to provide documentation of the financial impact they experienced due to COVID-19. They must also provide documentation to show that they meet the income qualifications of the program.

Once City staff receive all of the required documentation, they will be able to determine whether or not a business is eligible for funding.

If a business is eligible for funding, they will receive an award letter and an agreement from the City of Peoria. They must sign and return the agreement.

Once the agreement is in place, payments for eligible expenses can be made. Businesses must submit their bills to City staff for payment or request reimbursement for payments made, provided proper documentation is submitted.
