Coronavirus grants won


Goddard and Sumner County are among 56 Kansas governmental bodies to received community development block grants as part of the nation’s coronavirus response.
Gov. Laura Kelly announced the second round of CDBG funds on July 23.
Sumner County will receive $138,600. Goddard will get $132,000. These grants are available in two categories, economic development and meal programs.
Economic development grants provide communities with funding to help local businesses retain jobs for low-to-moderate income people by covering working capital expenses such as inventory, wages and utilities. Meal program grants can be directed toward organizations such as Meals on Wheels, local food banks, or to support organizations providing meals for children impacted by the loss of school meal programs.
