HELP Fund Loan Program

Growing your Community

Affordable financing is the key to most community development projects.

The Heartland Economic Development Loan Program (HELP) Fund offers just that.

Through a revolving loan fund, the HELP Fund offers stable interest rates, lower than traditional rates. We work with local banks to bring projects to fruition. We are able to offer financing for 10 years for land, buildings and permanent fixtures. Customers can also receive financing for up to 10 years or the useful life of machinery and equipment. 

Heartland Energy believes in power with purpose – reliable energy with a commitment to seeing our customer communities grow and thrive. We want to be a partner to ensure your community is ready for that next big project. 

To date, Heartland Energy has awarded 62 loans totaling over $17 million.
