Goals include bringing more funding to the region, job creation, quality of place, population retention, stretching local dollars further, coordinating regionally when it makes sense, and working to move local priorities forward.

2021-2026 FHEDD Plan

The vision of the Flint Hills Economic Development District is to increase regional prosperity by being a globally competitive, business-friendly region comprised of healthy communities that sustain a high-quality of life.

Our Additional Services

We also provide community planning, grant, and technical assistance to our member jurisdictions.  We understand and value the importance of working collaboratively, as we are stronger together and more effective.  Industry markets, workforce, public health, access to healthcare and mental health services, emergency services and environmental issues do not stop at jurisdictional boundaries.  These issues require cooperation and coordination between communities.  The Flint Hills Regional Council exists to support the facilitation of collaborative efforts that bring mutual benefit to the region.

Our meetings are open to the public.

We welcome your support and service!
