Community Development Success Story

Community Development programs help Kansas communities provide quality investments for community and economic growth. Across Kansas, there are numerous examples of successes fueled by Community Development opportunities, to include Kansas Main Street programming and assistance for downtown development ... Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission funding for arts and cultural programs ... Rural Opportunity Zones that offer an incentive for college graduates to create a life in rural Kansas counties ... Community Development technical assistance for placemaking, planning, community assessments and grant writing ... and Community Development Block Grant funding to cities and counties for improvements to infrastructure such as waterlines and streets and sidewalks, community facilities and services such as childcare, parks, playgrounds and community centers ... as well as housing rehabilitation and neighborhood development. All are making a difference across Kansas, and we want to share the details! Your success is our success, so please help us showcase your community. Sharing your success story also will help inspire the same kind of tremendous opportunities for other Kansas communities.
