Community Student Loan Assistance Program

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.

The Clinton County leadership team understands that the $1.5 trillion in student loan debt shouldered by more than 45 million Americans serves as an impediment to economic growth in rural counties. Investment in the purchase of a home, vehicle or starting of a family, may be delayed due to the financial burden of student loan debt.
 
Individuals enrolled in the Clinton County Community Student Loan Assistance Program will receive $30 a month toward the payoff of their student loan debt. Eligible candidates have the opportunity to receive additional contributions through an established partnership with county-based municipalities and community school districts.
