Priority Considerations  

Grant applications focused on capital improvement projects, systems, and program expansion opportunities for facilities/organizations that provide health, education, and early childhood resources to Kansas communities (ex: learning centers, family resource centers, children’s museums, health initiatives etc.)  The following will be taken into special consideration when reviewing the grant applications:   


  • Priority will be given to shovel-ready projects that support communities with significant health, education and early childhood resource needs. 


  • Applicants that have existing or established program or resources that will be amplified or increase capacity as a result of receiving a capital improvement award through this RFP.  


  • Applicants that demonstrate through the capital improvement award that development and enhancement of programs focused on improving youth literacy and high school graduation rates in Kansas to recover from negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.  


  • Provide sufficient program resources for implementation and sustainability of programs.  These programs and resources for the programs must be connected to expanded capacity resulting from construction, renovation and/or remodeling of multi-purpose facilities intended to jointly and directly enable work, education, and health monitoring for families in Kansas communities and increase access to these services.  


  • Applicants that demonstrate through the capital improvement award the facilities or system network will provide a coordinated care network that connects clinical healthcare and social care to address issues of housing, hunger, unemployment, social isolation and transportation.
