Government Capital Corporation was founded in 1992 with one simple mission: “Bring Wall Street to Main Street.” Although GCC routinely assists the largest municipal issuers across the country in financing personal property and infrastructure projects, their growing team of professionals deliver the same level of expertise and hands on customer service to all sizes and types of municipal entities. GCC believes that the small Volunteer Fire Department in rural America should have the same access to capital as the large metropolitan city. More importantly, GCC strives to partner with and educate their clients in a very personal way, on the uniquenesses and advantages of the many innovative tax exempt municipal financing structures which are available. To ensure that their clients have access to all financing alternatives, GCC incorporated a sister company, Government Capital Securities Corporation in 1999. GCC’s mission is to provide efficient, cost-effective municipal financing solutions. GCC deploys their Vendor Services team across the country every day to work with manufacturers and distributors who sell products and services to municipal entities. Working concurrently with municipal issuers and vendors together, our financing programs serve to simplify the municipal procurement process and expedite delivery and installation of equipment. This results in win-win solutions for both our municipal issuer clients and vendor clients as well. GCC has earned the trust of thousands of municipal issuers and vendor clients in all fifty states and would appreciate the opportunity to share their expertise with you.

Our drive toward Medicaid excellence is stronger than ever and our motivation is the impact we believe educators can have on the world when obstacles that could slow them down are removed from their path.

School districts have instilled in us the power of transparency, the importance of authenticity, the result of hard work, and the strength of pursuit required to become a better company for them, one day at a time. MSB has and will continue to transform to serve our clients across the state where they need us the most: through Medicaid excellence.

We are raving fans of educators and strive to be the type of people, and to provide the level of service that makes them raving fans of us. To know the educators we work with is to know who we aspire to be.
