From 2004 to 2016, REAP served as the grant recipient for Kansas Local Area IV Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funds from the U. S. Department of Labor. The Workforce Alliance of South Central Kansas was the Operator and Administrator for these funds, which was overseen by the Chief Elected Officials Board (CEOB), housed within REAP.

Wichita Mayor Jeff Longwell was the Kansas Local Area IV Chief Elected Official, overseeing more than $4.67 million annually in WIA funds invested in South Central Kansas.  Council Member Longwell held the CEOB seat on the LWIB, voting on behalf of the CEOB.  CEOB business was reported to the REAP Board of Directors and/or REAP Executive Committee.
