Economic Development Agencies

There are three major economic development agencies that lead economic development in our area.

The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) leads economic development efforts for the State of Illinois.

The Economic Development Council (EDC) for Central Illinois is the regional economic development group for the three county Peoria Metropolitan Area.

The City of Peoria Economic Development Department is part of City government, and focus our efforts on City of Peoria development. We work closely and well with DCEO and EDC.
