Ford County

Community Development

K-State Research and Extension is committed to providing educational opportunities to Kansas citizens to ensure strong, healthy communities.

A community's sustainability depends on its long-term ability to meet residents' needs. One goal of K-State Research and Extension is to provide technical assistance and evidence-based programs to citizens who want to make sure their communities survive and prosper. K-State Research and Extension can play a key role in helping people create a vision across traditional geographical, sociological, and political boundaries. We can help your community become a better place to live and work.
