Kansas has received

$69 million+ to support small business funding

Strengthening the economic landscape for Kansas entrepreneurs gained significant momentum following the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s announcement of $69 million being awarded to the Sunflower State.

Kansas was among the first five states to receive funding.

The allocation more than quadrupled the amount of funding Kansas received during State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI) 1.0.
