A community's sustainability depends on its long-term ability to meet residents' needs. One of our goals at K-State Research and Extension is to provide technical assistance and evidence based programs to citizens who want to make sure their communities survive and prosper.
K-State Research and Extension can play a key role in helping people create a vision across traditional geographical, sociological, and political boundaries. As Henry Ford said "Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success."
Many counties across Kansas, including Thomas County, participated in community vitality programs within the 2016-2017 year. View the 2018 Community Vitality Report here.
