To Increase Economic Opportunity and Improve the Quality of Life for All Rural Americans

Welcome to USDA Rural Development Kansas. We are committed to helping improve the economy and quality of life in rural Kansas. Through our programs, we touch rural America in many ways.

Our financial programs support such essential public facilities and services as water and sewer systems, housing, health clinics, emergency service facilities and electric and telephone service. We promote economic development by supporting loans to businesses through banks, credit unions and community-managed lending pools. We offer technical assistance and information to help agricultural producers and cooperatives get started and improve the effectiveness of their operations. We provide technical assistance to help communities undertake community empowerment programs.

USDA Rural Development Kansas brought over $413 million back into the state in 2013 – funding that assisted rural communities and individuals in a variety of ways to finance and foster growth in homeownership, business development, and critical community and technological infrastructures.
