RURAL OPPORTUNITY ZONES

There’s something special about life in rural Kansas. It is an ideal place to live, work and raise a family.

Kansas is the best choice to lower your cost of living, improve your quality of life and get help repaying your student loans. The Kansas Rural Opportunity Zone program can make Kansas rural live possible.

Rural Opportunity Zones are almost 80 Kansas counties that have been authorized to offer one or both of the following financial incentives to new full-time residents:

  • Kansas state income tax waivers for up to five years
  • Student loan repayments up to $15,000 over 5 years
