The Governor’s Grants Program values Kansans living in healthy communities, where they can grow, learn, feel safe and thrive economically. The Program strives to remove obstacles in Kansas communities, neighborhoods, schools, businesses and homes to ensure the safety and security of all Kansans. By administering federal and state grants to units of state and local government, Native American Tribes, nonprofit, community and faith-based organizations throughout the state, the Program aims to enhance the criminal justice system, improve public safety, support crime victim services and drug and violence prevention programs throughout Kansas.
The program is dedicated to ensuring a S.A.F.E. Kansas where:
- Services are available and accessible in every community;
- Accountability for systems, agencies and services is addressed;
- Funding is provided for adequate resources;
- and Empowerment of individuals is encouraged.
"Nothing that is worth doing can be done alone, but has to be done with others." - Dr. Reinhold Niebuhr
