Franklin County Announces CDBG-CV Funding

Franklin County, KS – The Franklin County Board of County Commissioners is excited to announce the receipt of $132,000 in CDBG-CV funds that will be awarded to area Franklin County businesses. Funding was made available through a grant from the Small Business Administration (SBA) that was applied for by Franklin County Economic Development Executive Director, Paul Bean.
