Peoria County launching new business website, minority contractor focus
“So you would go to the site, plugin your information into resource navigator tool, and it will then output for you all the resources that will fit your needs, whether its business plan development, financing, site location. It will tell you what resources are in your area that fit your needs.”
The website was formally announced during the annual State of the County Address Wednesday. The County is also launching a minority contractor pilot program. Rothert says the County is going through vendors to set-up a program that identifies obstacles and solutions to helping minority contractors expand.
