Webinar 6: Funding the Transition
Let’s work on fitting the funding puzzle pieces together. We’ll hear from Stafford County Economic Development and feature a recently completed grocery project in Central Kansas that compiled more than 10 types of funding to make their store a reality. For current and prospective grocers, this panel of funders will share details on relevant funding opportunities - federal, statewide, local, municipal and others - that can be used to support rural grocery. While some of the funding opportunities discussed are available across the country, this webinar will have a focus on Kansas-specific funding opportunities.
