Building Strong Communities

Fostering the development of vibrant communities in Kansas

Communities are the heart of Kansas. So, community development is central to our approach when it comes to growing the economy.

One of the first priorities companies consider when deciding where to locate is whether their employees will be able to live happily and comfortably. When it comes to Kansas, we know they can and will.

The Community Development team is here for you. If you are interested in one of our team members visiting your community, simply fill out the Community Development Interest Form below. We’ll be in contact with you soon!

Kansas cities and towns are dynamic because of the efforts of the locals who live, work and play there.

Kansas communities are some of the best in the world. They can’t be beaten when it comes to safety, quality of life and the amazing people who call them home. At the Kansas Department of Commerce, our mission is to serve these communities and the people in them as thoughtfully and effectively as possible.
