Peoria Promise reimburses tuition costs to Illinois Central College for city of Peoria residents. Peoria Promise serves two roles: attracting educated workers to our community, and producing more of them through access to higher education. Education offers the very real potential to increase an individual’s productivity—the key to economic growth. For businesses, the return on investment is a city with a well-trained, employable population, and a more desirable place to live and do business.
