Encouraging Community Growth and Economic Stability
Heartland is committed to stimulating growth and prosperity in or customer communities. We offer a progressive economic development program including grants, incentives and a revolving loan fund – incentives our customers can promote to attract new businesses and to encourage existing businesses to expand. Ultimately, we strive to create economic stability and a superior quality of life for our customers.
To further our goal, we have formed strong relationships with industry professionals and invest our own resources to the cause. Since 2004, Heartland has received more than $2.8 million from the USDA Department of Rural Development for our loan program. In turn, Heartland has put more than $4.7 million into grants, incentives and loans to stimulate industrial and commercial growth. Our programs have also contributed to the creation or preservation of more than 900 jobs in our customer municipalities.
