The Flint Hills Regional Council was awarded grant funding through the Economic Development Administration (EDA) Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to create a Regional Economic Recovery and Resiliency Plan.
COVID-19 has severely impacted the Flint Hills Region, and the road to recovery is anticipated to be long and hard. Our approach to recovery must be both holistic and practical.
As a region, we must take strategic steps to prevent a future spike as much as able, prepare and be ready should another spike in cases occur to reduce the impact, and work to stabilize the economy at all levels.
The Regional Recovery and Resiliency Plan will provide a framework for the seven counties within the Flint Hills Economic Development District: Chase, Geary, Lyon, Morris, Pottawatomie, Riley, and Wabaunsee.
