About Flint Hills Frontiers

Flint Hills Frontiers is an opportunity to come together and explore the future of our homeland. The Flint Hills cross political and social boundaries and is an ecoregion that encompasses 19 counties in Kansas and Oklahoma. Flint Hills Frontiers provides a platform and an opportunity, over the next three years, for the people of this region to establish their vision and choose their path forward. Participation will give you and your organization a voice in the outcomes, a chance to gain an intimate understanding of the region’s strengths and needs, and access to new tools for evaluating investments and measuring progress on regional goals. Involvement may even pave the way towards increased funding opportunities for your community as it becomes a more integrated part of the regional vision for increased health and vibrancy. Please be a part of this important work!
