Opportunities to support the SCKEDD mission
At SCKEDD, we believe our role is to enhance and improve the economic vitality, community infrastructure, and housing quality within the region we serve in Kansas.
We carry out our mission by providing business loans, grants for communities, grants for housing renovation, grants for weatherization, and working with donors to support our mission.
Since 1972, SCKEDD has been partnering with communities located in south-central Kansas to advance economic growth and prosperity for all residents.
Serving a richly diverse and distinctive region, SCKEDD promotes regional strategies, partnerships, and solutions to strengthen the economic competitiveness and quality of life across the region.
These successful partnerships are creating new commercial opportunities, financing innovative community projects and enhancing community housing to attract and support a skills-based workforce.
