REAP Area Map 12.13

The Regional Economic Area Partnership (REAP) is comprised of twenty-six city and county governments in nine counties of South Central Kansas and multiple associate members.

These jurisdictions and partners have voluntarily joined together for two primary purposes:

  1. Guide state and national actions that affect economic development in the region; and 
  2. Adopt joint actions among member governments that enhance the regional economy.

How We Do It

Regional Forums

Convene the Board of Directors at quarterly meetings to develop relationships, facilitate dialogue, promote regional connectedness, and identify opportunities to work together. REAP coordinates conferences, workshops, and summits that provide valuable information on key state and national policy issues.

Legislative Policy and Promotion

Convene the Legislative Committee that identifies and coordinates collaborative efforts on policy issues of regional concern at the state or federal level. Develop annual legislative priorities, advocated by a Topeka-based legislative liaison and REAP leadership and members.
