Rural Kansans often feel as if their communities are overlooked or dismissed.

It’s a legitimate concern. Unfortunately, policymaking tends to favor places with bigger populations, leaving rural locales to do more with less because of declining populations.

Many small towns in Kansas have suffered over the years and face extinction without significant change. Knowing as much, it’s encouraging to see a push toward new strategies and greater awareness of assistance already available.
