Rural Development

We understand community development isn't always easy, so we have forged relationships with industry professionals and are investing our own resources. Since 2004, Heartland has received more than $2.8 million from the USDA Department of Rural Development to infuse our loan program. In turn, Heartland has injected more than $4.7 million in grants, cash incentives and loans to help stimulate industrial and commercial growth in our customer communities. Our economic development programs can also be directly linked to 230 jobs for over 75 companies served by our customer municipalities.
