(KAIR)--The Community Development Block Grant Team, of the Kansas Department of Commerce, has been traveling the state, outlining ways partnerships, using CDBG funding, can improve Kansas communities.

According to a release from the state commerce department, the team has traveled over 1,000 miles, across all regions of the state, bringing its so-called "road show meetings" to those locations, with the travels coming to an end Tuesday, in Atchison, where the final presentation was held.

Among local leaders in attendance at the session were Atchison County Commissioners Casey Quinn and Eric Noll, as well as County Finance Director Mark Zeltner, and County Counselor Patrick Henderson.

In a release following the session, Quinn called it "informative and exciting to learn of the funding opportunities available," adding that while local business owners were in attendance, those who could not attend will soon be able to view the information on the Atchison County website.

KDOC notes that since the start of the sessions, a total of seven were held, with more than 190 attendees participating statewide.

The federally administered Community Development Block Grant Program supports community development activities to build stronger and more resilient communities.
