Commerce announces nearly $900,000 in KAN STEP grants

The Kansas Department of Commerce announced today that three communities have received grants through the Kansas Small Towns Environment Program (KAN STEP). The funds, which total $899,992, will be used in conjunction with volunteer labor and donated equipment to complete projects in the communities.

KAN STEP is an ongoing, competitive self-help program for communities to address water, sewer and public building needs through greater initiative and with fewer dollars. Communities must demonstrate readiness, capacity and documented cost savings to receive KAN STEP funding.

The following communities have received KAN STEP grants:

• The city of Troy will rehabilitate an existing library to better serve local residents. The improvement will involve construction of a space that will be used as a children’s library. The city will receive $299,995.

• Nemaha County Rural Fire District no. 2 will construct a new fire station building to house its firefighting equipment and offer training space to better serve the 25 volunteer fire fighters. The fire district will receive $299,999.

• Dickinson County will use its award to renovate an obsolete and disused school building in the unincorporated town of Navarre. The improved building will continue to serve as the focal point of this rural community, sponsoring 4-H meetings, family reunions, Coop meetings and other activities. The county will receive $299,998.
