Several south east Kansas agencies receive grant money to fight substance abuse.
Kansas State Attorney General Kris Kobach announces $6 million in grant money to 33 applicants across the state. Local agencies receiving funding include the Crawford County Mental Health Center and the Community Health Center of South East Kansas, each receiving $200,000 and New Beginnings, Inc, receiving $195,000. The Kansas Fights Addiction Grant Review Board awarded the grant money in support of substance abuse and addiction services.
