The Clinton County leadership team understands that the $1.5 trillion in student loan debt shouldered by over 45 million Americans serves as an impediment to economic growth in rural counties. Investment in the purchase of a home, vehicle, or the starting of a family, may be delayed due to the financial burden of student loan debt.

The Clinton County Community Student Loan Assistance Program was created to help ease the financial burden of student loans while recruiting and retaining top talent through a progressive debt relief initiative.
