From financing options, such as the D’Arcy Loan, and other initiatives, we provide resources to grow and develop Allen County. We leverage the many strengths and attributes of the region’s skilled workforce, transportation and technology corridors, educational resources, real estate options, and infrastructure to spur economic growth for the communities we serve.
