About
The Regional Economic Area Partnership (REAP) is comprised of 37 city and county governments in nine counties of South Central Kansas including Butler, Cowley, Harper, Harvey, Kingman, McPherson, Reno, Sedgwick and Sumner counties.

Recognizing the need for regional leadership, the local governments formed REAP in 1997. Since that time, REAP has grown into an established voice on issues of common concern.

The governments joined together in order to:

  • To guide state and national actions that affect economic development in the region
  • To consider and adopt joint actions among member governments that enhances the regional economy

The Regional Economic Area Partnership of South Central Kansas received a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) South Central Kansas Prosperity "Think Tomorrow Today," to create a long term regional plan for ensuring the health and productivity of our local economy.
