All Kansas PRIDE community groups are organized with the best interests of their community in mind, and are organized to tackle projects for community betterment. Enrollment begins after January 1.

Communities Enrollment Options

Enrollment can be completed by visiting the "Enrollment" button on the left menu pane.

Once a community has enrolled, it is required that the community make any local government entities aware that the community is now part of the PRIDE Program. This can be done by completing a resolution form. The resolution number section of the enrollment form can be completed at any time after enrollment by updating your enrollment information.
