The Kansas Department of Transportation is now accepting applications for the spring 2023 round of the agency’s Cost Share Program.
More than $110 million has been given to Kansas communities since the Cost Share Program’s began in 2019.
The Cost Share Program provides financial assistance to local entities for construction projects that improve safety, leverage state funds to increase total transportation investment and help both rural and urban areas of the state improve the transportation system. This is the eighth round of projects to receive funding.
“Cost Share funding greatly benefits communities of all sizes by helping needed transportation projects become reality,” said Michelle Needham, KDOT Economic Development Programs Manager. “This program provides urban and rural areas with numerous opportunities to improve transportation, generate economic growth and create job opportunities.”
An informational webinar on the program will take place on Thursday, March 2, at 10:30 a.m. The application process will be discussed, and attendees can ask questions.
