“The HELP program saved [us] more than $20,000 in interest payments over the term of our loan.  Their interest rates and customer service are outstanding!” –  Maribeth Alspach, Town of New Whiteland (Fire Engine)

“The HELP program was a simple process, we received an incredible interest rate, and it will aid in conserving our Public Safety LIT cash reserves.  Due to the unforeseeable reduction in income tax in 2021 due to COVID-19 this will prove to be extremely beneficial.” – Rebecca Miller, City of Mishawaka (Police Fleet)

“Not only was I able to save valuable time by being exempt from having to bid the financing, but did so while being confident I was securing a great rate for the city!” – Shawn Gerkin, City of North Vernon (Trash Truck and Sewer Vactor)

“The HELP Program went very smooth.  We received quick and accurate responses to planning questions and ultimately a great rate.” – Thomas Dippel, City of Huntingburg (Tractor/Snowplow)
