Tri-County Youth Sports Grant
 
Recognizing the accomplishments of area athletes and sports contributors for more than 30 years, the Greater Peoria Sports Hall of Fame is giving back to the Tri-County youth sports programs through a new grant program being launched in 2016.  Aided by benefactor contributions to the Greater Peoria Sports Hall of Fame and revenues generated from the annual banquet, the GPSHOF annually will award $500 to one youth sports program in each of Peoria, Tazewell and Woodford Counties.
 
Youth programs interested in receiving a $500 grant should submit an application detailing the attributes of the program to the Greater Peoria Sports Hall of Fame by March 1 of each year.  Applications should be addressed to:
 
   Greater Peoria Sports Hall of Fame
   Attn:  Youth Sports Grant
   P.O. Box 9338
   Peoria, IL 61612
 
Basic information in the application should include the youth program's mission, how the funding can assist the mission and a primary point of contact.  All applications will be reviewed by the GPSHOF board and the three winning organizations will be announced during the Hall of Fame banquet.  To download the GRANT APPLICATION form:  (Click Here).

Mission Statement

Mission Statement

The first official Board of Directors meeting was held October 14, 1979. Officers were elected. Early decisions determined that the Hall of Famers would be from the Greater Peoria Area; the name would be The Greater Peoria Sports Hall of Fame; its purpose would be to promote and encourage the many varied sports programs in our area, to share with the area the pride we have in the accomplishments of area athletes, and to honor those men, women and teams contributing to our enjoyment and rich sports history.

With the cooperation of the Peoria Civic Center Commission and generous community support, the Greater Peoria Sports Hall of Fame is a reality and it's future is bright..
