“Receiving clean water and having well-functioning corresponding water systems is so vital to the health and vitality of a community,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Antonio Soave. “We are so pleased that so many communities in Kansas will have the opportunity to make improvements to such a crucial part of the community.”

“These 14 communities awarded CDBG funding assistance and those applicants who unfortunately could not be funded are to be commended for taking initiative to address their critical water and wastewater infrastructure needs”, said Kansas Water Office Director Tracy Streeter. “The amount of local funding provided to these projects is indicative of the local commitment to provide quality water and wastewater service to their customers.”
