Well, if you figure ~250 cu ft for a typical 1200g balloon, around 240,000. That's a lot of ARHAB flights!
If they were paying commercial rates for their helium (which I think is approaching $1/cu ft again), that'd be $60M for their lifting gas for that mission. Somehow I doubt they're paying that much.
